Community Engagement

Energy Innovation Conference
The UCLA Energy Innovation Conference is an annual event that brings together professionals, students, and academics with a passion for energy. Through this event, we showcase modern challenges in the energy sector and introduce industry thought leaders who share their perspectives on the innovations best suited to reinvent the industry.

Challenges in Energy Case Competition
Top business schools from all over the country send teams to UCLA Anderson in early February for the annual UCLA Challenges in Energy Case Competition. Teams are given the case prompt several weeks before the competition and then deliver their presentations to panels of judges. Winning teams earn both money and glory, and we wrap it up with a big happy hour and send-off.
