The College of Engineering will hold an open house on Saturday, Feb. 28, from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Campus Center Marketplace (Building 97) and Engineering Complex (Buildings 9 and 17). The event is part of the university?s observance of National Engineers Week, designated in 1951 as a week to raise awareness about the profession.

More than 100 faculty and current students will take part in the event, which provides an in-depth look at the college?s academic programs and laboratories. Through tours, workshops and briefings, participants can explore the College of Engineering?s seven departments ? Aerospace Engineering, Chemical & Materials Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Industrial & Manufacturing Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Engineering Technology ? and more than 30 laboratories, including the Biomedical Lab, GeoSpatial Information Systems Lab and Mechatronic Systems Lab.

The university boasts one of the largest undergraduate engineering enrollments west of the Rockies, with one of every 14 new engineers in California graduating from Cal Poly Pomona. In addition, the college has a well-earned reputation for putting theory into practice and for producing industry-ready engineers. In the latest U.S. News & World Report rankings, the college was in the top 10 best undergraduate engineering programs offering bachelor and master degrees.

Parking for the open house is free in Lots C and D. For open house information, call the Engineering Open House hotline at (909) 869-2471 or visit www.cpp.edu/~engineering.
