California Polytechnical State University
Cal Poly is a nationally ranked public university that prides itself on the individual success of our students. Cal Poly's signature Learn by Doing approach to higher education is a powerful combination of academic expertise and hands-on experience. At Cal Poly, most classes are taught by professors in small classrooms — not large lecture halls. The resulting close community of high-achieving students and professors provide the inspiration and support to challenge students both academically and personally. Located in San Luis Obispo on California’s sunny Central Coast, Cal Poly maintains a strong connection to industry in both the Bay Area and Southern California, allowing for greater opportunities for students.
