Nobel laureates: 21 faculty members, including 8 current faculty.

Over the past decade (2000-2009), the National Science Foundation awarded more Graduate Research Fellowships to UC Berkeley students than to those of any other university (MIT was 2nd; Stanford 3rd; Harvard 4th).

For Electrical and Computer Science admissions are very competitive. Most successful applicants last year had GPAs above 3.7 and GRE quantitative scores above 90%. Many successful Computer Science applicants took the GRE Computer Science Subject test and scored above 90%. For Fall 2010 we had approximately 3000 applicants for about 100 slots.

Mechanical Engineering: Most successful applicants last year had GPAs above 3.7 and GRE quantitative scores above 90%. For Fall 2010 we had approximately 940 applicants for about 75 admission slots.

Civil and Environmental Engineering : There is no minimum score however average GRE scores are 150+ (verbal), 160+(Quant.) and 4+ (Writing)
