Why Choose Cal Poly?
Lab Centered Learning
The core philosophy at Cal Poly is the concept of "learn by doing." The Computer Engineering Program exemplifies Cal Poly's "learn by doing" philosophy through a laboratory-intensive approach to Computer Engineering — each class offered for our engineering students also has a lab component. The core principles of computer engineering are emphasized by integrating design throughout the curriculum, especially in the numerous design-centered laboratory courses.
Access to Professors
Students in the Cal Poly Computer Engineering Program have access to their professors during lecture, lab and office hours. Our professors are not only passionate about teaching, but committed to educating the next generation of engineers.
Small Class Sizes
Small class sizes are the hallmark of our courses which ensures students are in the best environment possible for learning and academic success.
