Striking a balance between urban excitement and rural charm, Cal Poly
Pomona is nestled in 1,438 rolling acres on the eastern edge of Los
Angeles County. As one of only seven polytechnic universities
nationwide, Cal Poly Pomona is known for its learn-by-doing philosophy.
The university recognizes that students who solve classroom problems
today have an advantage as employees solving real-world problems
tomorrow. Faculty in all disciplines apply theory to practice, creating
opportunities for students to use their knowledge in hands-on projects,
collaboration in research, and participation in valuable internships and
service learning programs.
