In Fall 2015, the UCLA Electrical Engineering Department inaugurated the Fast Track to Success program for incoming undergraduate students. The main purpose of this program is to recruit a pool of highly talented high school students and provide them with a supportive environment and opportunities so that they can challenge themselves to succeed in their future careers as engineers in industry, academia and entrepreneurship.
The first Fast-Track class consists of 21 students; 8 females and 13 males. Of these 3 are from overseas and 2 others are non-California resident U.S. students. The rest are from California high schools. The students in this group will be encouraged to enroll together in at least one honors/advanced standing class every quarter to encourage them to excel in a supportive peer group environment. The students are expected to maintain an accumulated GPA of at least 3.3 and take at least 30 units worth of honors/advanced standing classes during their 4 years at UCLA. These students will also be considered for summer internships, starting in their freshman year, with faculty members in the Electrical Engineering department and present their work in a special forum at the end of the summer.
