Bachelor of Science

California Polytechnic State University

Cal Poly is a nationally ranked, four-year, comprehensive public university located in San Luis Obispo California. The emphasis of the University is a "learn by doing" educational experience for its more than 18,000+ students. Many students seek admission to Cal Poly not only because of its excellent academic reputation, but also because the 6,000-acre main campus is nestled in the foothills of San Luis Obispo, just minutes from California's Central Coast beaches.


Attending Cal Poly has been a unique and rewarding experience unlike that of any other university. The "Learn by Doing" motto is interwoven into every facet of the curriculum that enabled me to not only receive a top-notch education but allowed me to immerse myself with real world experience.
