Celebrating eTransfers 2022!

A Message From the Engineering Transfer Center

Dear Engineering Transfers,

We want to congratulate all of our alumni who will be starting a new chapter in their life. 

2021 was surely a tough year to have as seniors. With the restrictions regarding COVID rapidly changing, the flip flop between in-person and online classes required both careful planning and the ability to adapt to change. With the ebb and flow of case numbers, everyone had to constantly readjust their lifestyles, academic schedules, and priorities. Transitioning to having in-person exams with masks on after months of online exams, choosing to go to class every day while knowing full well that you might contract COVID demanded an amount of resolve and courage, unlike any other year.

Although these trying times took a toll on all of us, they also ingrained the grit necessary to overcome any hardship that awaits us in the future. The qualities that were needed to navigate this unstable year, perseverance, creativity, and empathy, are also the ones that define good engineers.  

Against these hardships, we, as the Engineering Transfer Center, also managed to adapt and thrive. We were able to host our first in-person Welcome in over 2 years, study breaks, and even a Scary-movie night for Halloween! Our student organization partners helped to create the UCLA Engineering road-shows to go out to local community colleges and encourage students to consider Bruin Engineering.  We were able to host our first ever Pre-OPS program at El Camino College and are preparing a new cadre of trainers to teach their peers.  

The Center hosted its first in-person Discover UCLA Engineering for Transfer Students with the student organizations and Departments since the start of the pandemic. Looking forward, we are gearing up for the summer Accelerator for incoming engineering transfers and have added additional Diagnostic Assessments to help students evaluate proficiency before fall classes start.

Eventually, this slow return to “normal” will be complete. However, the lessons we learned, the choices we made, and the abilities we gained will stay with us. These will influence the way we approach problems, react to change, and resolve conflicts. We tackle these challenges with you.  Stay strong Bruin eTransfers! Congratulations on a successful year and for you graduating seniors; good luck in the next chapter of your life.
