Cal Poly Pomona is one of only two polytechnic universities in the state of California, and one of just 11 in the nation.
The classical meaning of polytechnic is "skilled in many arts." At Cal Poly Pomona, it means more than that. Here, we take a multi-faceted approach to problem solving, looking at a situation from all possible angles. All of our academic disciplines embrace the teaching of theory through application. This focus on actions and solutions turns our students into skilled workers, integrative problem solvers and well-balanced leaders.
There's no such thing as an "average day" at Cal Poly Pomona. The possibilities are as diverse as our students' backgrounds. From the moment you wake, your experience is what you make of it both on campus and in the local community. There are so many places to eat, learn, relax, work, shop, exercise, contemplate or simply hangout with new friends. Every day is your own creation.
Take the time to expand your horizons and try something new. Meet people from different backgrounds. Connect with students in other disciplines. Learn a new dance. Or catch a home game and get into the Bronco Spirit.
