Quite possibly this institution offers students and faculty one of the best views in the world. Spread along the Pacific Ocean on 1,200 acres of coastal woodland, UCSD is only 40 years old and already has achieved status as one of the top institutions in the U.S. for research and higher education. The National Research Council ranks UCSD tenth in the nation in the quality of its faculty and graduate programs. It ranks sixth in the U.S. in National Academy of Sciences membership. And U.S. News and World Report ranks UCSD the seventh-best public university in the nation. Seven Nobel Prizes have been awarded to its faculty.
UCSD's graduate and professional schools include Scripps
Institution of Oceanography; School of Medicine; School of
International Relations and Pacific Studies; School of Pharmacy
and Pharmaceutical Sciences; Jacobs School of Engineering
(graduate and undergraduate); and Rady School of Management.
The campus also is home to the San Diego Supercomputer Center;
California Institute for Information Technology and Telecommunications;
Center for Research in Computing and the Arts; Institute on
Global Conflict and Cooperation; and Institute of the Americas.
The campus is a lovely place to stroll both for its stunning views and innovative architecture.
