College of Science

Welcome from the Dean

Alison Baski

Welcome to the College of Science at Cal Poly Pomona!

Many of you are looking to continue your education in science, technology or mathematical fields, and I want to let you know you’ve come to the right place. Our students are talented, highly motivated to learn, and driven to excel in their fields. Moreover, our dedicated faculty will be there for you on your journey.

Our “learn-by-doing” motto is not just words – you will see for yourselves how we create unique opportunities for students to work closely with their professors. This creates an unusually rich learning environment that spurs innovative research even at the undergraduate level. Take a look through the website and remember that your stories, photos, and videos can be up here in just a few years’ time. Cal Poly Pomona’s ‘learn by doing’ philosophy in the College of Science not only fosters ingenuity, but prepares graduates to get great jobs at great companies.

Our graduates are now working at Google, Boeing, Microsoft, Amgen, JPL and Yahoo, just to name a few. Some students, while working towards their degree, have worked with research grants to positively impact science and the surrounding community. Other graduates have gone on to further their education with Master’s and PhD degrees. All in all, our College of Science graduates have gone on to successful careers and we are very proud of them.

You have chosen to begin your career at one of Cal Poly Pomona's most recognized colleges and we all look forward to meeting you.

Best wishes,

Alison Baski, Ph.D
