Five of the ten projects representing Cal Poly at this year’s California State University Student Research Competition next month are from the College of Engineering.
The competition, now in its 35th year, showcases the innovative research and creative activities of undergraduate and graduate students in the full range of academic programs offered by the CSU. Hosted by Cal Poly Pomona, the competition will be held virtually this year, April 30 and May 1.
At Cal Poly, the Academic Senate Grants Review Committee served as jurors to select ten presentations from 46, representing all colleges, after the university’s own internal competition in February.
