Bruin Engineers Week UCLA

Hosted by ESUC

Our Story

Bruin Engineers Week (E-Week) is an annual week-long series of events hosted by ESUC during Week 2 of Spring Quarter in celebration of all things engineering.

Our Plan

Numerous events involving volunteering, networking, problem-solving, dancing, expressing ideas, and having fun will be available for students to attend.

Our Vision

Events held during Bruin E-Week are designed to bring students together through innovation, outreach, and fun as well as promote individual development.

Field Day

Come for a casual event with UCLA Engineering Students to come together to enjoy food, outdoor games, and company!

  • Date: Sunday, April 9, 2023
  • Time: 4 PM to 5 PM
  • Location: Sunset Recreation Mesa Lawn

The goal is for students to be able to take a break from studying, reconnect with nature, and become familiarized with their community of engineers. The community outcome will be better relationships within the engineering community that can help in improving student experiences in the classroom, in clubs, and in exploring engineering endeavors.

Kids Day

Are you interested in helping young kids develop an interest in engineering? Volunteer at our outreach event where elementary school students in the area are invited to participate in hands-on activities led by UCLA engineering orgs! Sign up here:

  • Date: Tuesday, April 11, 2023
  • Time: 10 AM to 12 PM
  • Location: Engineering IV

Bruin Engineers Week is a decades-old tradition at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) hosted by the Engineering Society of UCLA. During this week-long festivities, the UCLA engineering community gathers to celebrate the achievements of the engineering clubs and works together to give back to the greater community. One of the primary events is Kids Day, during which hundreds of elementary school students are invited to UCLA for a day of hands-on learning outside of a classroom setting. This is a rewarding experience for older students to volunteer their time to the community and help foster a love for learning and engineering in younger students.

This smaller networking event is embedded in Bruin E-week and is designed to be a casual, informative evening for students to start or continue forming professional relationships with company representatives/alumni, as well as get advice.
