    Below a UC GPA of 4.0, will make any Engineering a tough admit even with a stellar SAT score. Since Engineering majors are highly competitive at the UC’s, you want your stats to fall above the averages. UC’s tend to be very GPA focused so if your GPA is the only problem area in your application, you have a chance at all these schools but make sure you identify a few safety schools to add to your list.

    2018 Freshman admit rates for UC GPA of 3.80-4.19 capped weighted and not major specific:
    UCB: 10%
    UCLA: 9%
    UCSD: 34%
    UCSB: 38%
    UCD: 41%
    UCI: 38%
    UCSC: 70%
    UCR: 84%
    UCM: 95%

    2019 UC capped weighted GPA averages:
    UCB: 4.23
    UCLA: 4.25
    UCSD: 4.23
    UCSB: 4.16
    UCI: 4.13
    UCD: 4.13
    UCSC: 3.96
    UCR: 3.90
    UCM: 3.73

    2019 Data:
    25th - 75th percentiles for SAT totals:
    UCB: 1340-1540
    UCLA: 1330-1550
    UCSD: 1300-1520
    UCSB: 1280-1520
    UCD: 1230-1490
    UCI: 1250-1510
    UCSC: 1200-1450
    UCR: 1130-1400
    UCM: 1020-1290

    with a sub 4 GPA, most of the UCs are unlikely. Your best shot will be UCR and UCM. There's some subjectivity in UC admissions, since you have strong ECs and personal statements, apply to the others as well because, they could happen. Also apply to a couple of CSUs so you'll have several options - SDSU and CPP would be at the top of my list
    good luck
