Accelerating California's Engineering Industry
- May 19, 2011
Covering engineering disciplines from aerospace, biomedical and marine to chemical, industrial and electrical, the CSU offers numerous undergraduate and graduate degrees that students can choose from.
Several CSU campuses collaborate with community organizations and other CSU campuses on several initiatives and programs to enhance the engineering profession. Such programs include:
Mathematics Engineering Science Achievement (MESA): A program that provides support such as classes, hands-on competitions, counseling, transfer support and a community environment to students from middle school through four-year colleges, with the primary objective of increasing future enrollment at the university level in the disciplines of mathematics, engineering and science. hhhCSU campuses involved in MESA include Chico State, Cal State East Bay, Fresno State, Cal State Fullerton, Cal State Long Beach, Cal State L.A., Sacramento State, San Diego State, San Francisco State, San José State, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and Sonoma State.
Project Lead The Way (PLTW): A national program dedicated to expanding pre-engineering curricula in middle and high schools by encouraging the development of problem-solving skills, critical thinking, creative and innovative reasoning, and a love of learning. Cal State East Bay, San Diego State, San José State and Cal Poly Pomona are all partners of PLTW.
