Each year, the UC Berkeley Master of Engineering (MEng) program admits students from around the world who go on to become leaders in their respective fields. With 43 countries and 257 undergraduate institutions represented in the Class of 2022, the Fung Institute welcomes a student body of technical leaders who come from many different backgrounds and perspectives.

As a result of their time spent in the program, Berkeley MEng students are given the tools they need through effective technical training and leadership development skills in order to become the innovators of tomorrow.

The one-year, full-time class is joined by students in UC Berkeley’s MBA/MEng dual degree program, which allows students with undergraduate technical training to earn both an MBA and an MEng degree in just two years.

This cohort will have the opportunity to participate in student-led Affinity Groups, which allow students with shared professional interests to form communities. This year, there are 14 affinity groups, including the newly-formed Aerospace, Digital Health, Human-Computer Interaction and Robotics groups. The cohort will also participate in the Fung Institute’s Bridges Alliance program, which provides micro-internship opportunities for students and alumni. Through access to these two programs, MEng students will gain invaluable experiential and networking opportunities.

In addition, this class will experience a mix of in-person and virtual instruction, as UC Berkeley welcomes students back to campus after several semesters of remote learning. Orientation and the pre-semester boot camp were held virtually, but as the semester begins the students will receive mainly in-person instruction.
