About the Webinar

Welcome to the UCLA Samueli School of Engineering Master of Science in Engineering Online Program Webinar discussing:

  • Online Master of Science in Engineering with Certificate of Specialization in Engineering Management
  • Online Master of Science in Engineering with Certificate of Specialization in Data Science Engineering

Our panel of presenters will share details about these two areas of study and UCLA Samueli overall to help you determine whether our school is the right fit. Topics covered during the webinar include:

  • An in-depth look at the curriculum and learning outcomes
  • An overview of what our online learning environment entails
  • The career outlook for engineering management and data science engineering graduates
  • Step-by-step guide to the admissions requirements

The Presenters

Jenn-Ming Yang

Jenn-Ming Yang

Director, Master of Science in Engineering Online, UCLA Samueli School of Engineering
Associate Dean, International Initiatives and Online Programs
Distinguished Professor and Collins Aerospace Chair for Excellence, Materials Science and Engineering
Jenn-Ming Yang, professor and Associate Dean of International Initiatives and Online Programs, received his B.S. in Materials Science and Engineering at National Tsing-Hua University, Taiwan. After two years of military service, he worked for Texas Instruments, Taiwan, as an engineer in charge of electronic packaging materials. He came to the United States in 1982 and received his Ph.D. in metallurgy from the University of Delaware. He joined the faculty at UCLA’s Department of Materials Science and Engineering in 1986.
At UCLA his major research interests are in processing and mechanical characterization of light weight metallic and composites for structural applications. This is primarily focused on investigating the fundamental problems related to processing, microstructure and behavior of metallic and composites for advanced aerospace structural and ground transportation applications.

These efforts are to create a science base in quantitative relations between the microstructural parameters and macroscopic mechanical response of high temperature metallic and composites. Such relationships would permit dependable engineering of composite structural components for safe and reliable service at elevated temperatures. Currently, Yang’s group is conducting experimental and theoretical work to study the processing, deformation and fracture of ultra-lightweight structural nanocomposites and nanostructured metallic materials.

Yang’s group is also conducting experimental work to study the nanomechanical behavior of nanostructured metallic and ceramic materials. This includes conducting nanomechanical testing of various advanced materials inside a scanning and transmission electron microscope to elucidate the deformation mechanisms and damage accumulation.

Yang currently supervises six Ph.D. and three M.S. students. He also collaborates with several aircraft engine companies in the United States and Europe. His work has resulted in more than 200 publications in journals and proceedings. Yang has received the National Science Foundation Foundation’s Presidential Young Investigator Award, Alcoa Foundation Award, the Ford Foundation Award, and R&D 100 Award.
