Supporting Civil Engineering at CPP

Only about two-thirds of the cost of a Cal Poly Pomona education is paid by the CSU allotment from the state general fund and by student fees. The remainder must be raised from other sources. Because of its strong emphasis on laboratories, and the minimal state funding available for laboratory maintenance and development, engineering is especially dependant on outside support.

Fortunately, civil engineering employers, alumni, and others have been very generous in helping us meet this shortfall, thus helping us maintain and build the program.

Partners in Civil Engineering Education 

Significant donations are recognized on the Civil Engineering Partners in Education donor wall, which is located in the hallway near the civil engineering department office. This donor wall helps students and others recognize the sources of external support.

You can make a donation directly to the department from the College of Engineering Make A Gift webpage.
