Cal Poly Pomona is known for its hands on aspect with regards
to student education. The College educates engineers and technologists to meet
increasingly complex technical challenges critical in assuring the future prosperity
of California through technological advancement. We are very proud of our 40
years of providing a quality education. We are the largest engineering college
in Southern California and the principal producer of engineers (600+ annually)
in nine disciplines. We supply one in every 14 engineers in California, and
all eligible programs are nationally accredited.
The College of Engineering prides itself in offering its students
the unique opportunity to engineer, design, build and test various projects.
Senior/Special projects range from designing and building new experiments for
one of our many required laboratories, to personal projects conceived and designed
by the individual student. Some of the more challenging design projects include
the Human Powered Submarine, as well as the SAE Formula car, SAE Baja, and Supermileage
vehicle. The SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Projects are unique with
international competitions held yearly where up to 100 universities from around
the world compete. Competitions are between three and five days and go through
a rigorous array of static and dynamic events. Cal Poly Pomona has always performed
extremely well in all entered events.
The projects mentioned are possible due to the College of Engineering's
devotion to providing and maintaining a lab for student use. This lab provides
students a facility in which to actively develop, design, fabricate, and test
these projects. The facility consists of basic machine shop equipment including
CNC mills, vertical and horizontal milling machines, engine lathes, grinders,
tooling, as well as welding equipment and hand tools.
Student activities in the Project area encompass a large cross-section
of the College population. There are regularly team members from all Engineering
disciplines on campus, which include Mechanical, Manufacturing, Civil, Electrical,
Chemical, Industrial, Aerospace, and Engineering Technology. Our teams have
always incorporated students from other Colleges on campus including Business,
Communications, Art, and others. The obvious advantage of the Projects lab operations
is the incorporation of different fields of study in an integrated project,
which has proven instrumental in getting students prepared for industry by having
them deal with one another on a professional level.
As Engineering Facilities Director and College Faculty, I invite you to contact me at any time for more information regarding our facility.
