College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Quality teaching is our highest priority. Students are taught by professors with outstanding academic credentials in classes small enough to allow for personal attention. Many of our faculty members have industry experience and connections. The fundamentals are essential. So is the ability to apply them to real-world situations. We strike just the right balance between theory and practice. Students gain extensive practical experience in our laboratories through hands-on learning. Sixty-five percent of jobs for new college graduates are in engineering and computer science, and studens will find many opportunities in the technologically rich region surrounding the campus. Among the fastest growing high-tech sectors in the area are computer hardware and electronics, computer software and new media, defense and aerospace, biomedical, pharmaceuticals, telecommunications and auto design. Our students start their careers with higher salaries than graduates in any other field of study at Cal State Fullerton. Internships provide valuable work experience and enable students to establish connections with potential employers. These connections are also made through partnerships with industry leaders who participate in our Industrial Affiliates Program. Students work closely with faculty members to develop new knowledge through research. The learning and the fun continues informally beyond the classroom. We have a number of active student chapters of national professional organizations.
