About us/our mission:

The UCLA student chapter of the Arab American Association of Engineers and Architects (AAAEA), founded in 2015, is a non-profit, non-political, non-religious, professional association dedicated to help, strengthen, empower, and inspire its members to achieve excellence. 

AAAEA promotes and advocates for the Arab American Engineers, Architects and Computer Science professionals in North America by hosting career and educational enhancement programs, technical exchange, fellowship, and community service. 

In our pursuit of creating a more interactive and engaging professional and academic experience at UCLA, we will be putting on a variety of events, including: Company Info Sessions and Tours, Semi Annual Meetings with other chapters across the nation, Community Educational Programs, Internship Application Building Sessions, and Scholarship Awards.

We are excited to bring the club back to life and bring new opportunities to our fellow Arab American Bruins. We hope to see our enthusiastic Bruins join our community in Winter Quarter 2021!
