Signature Polytechnic Experience (PolyX)

Signature Polytechnic Experiences (PolyX)

Signature polytechnic experiences (PolyX) at Cal Poly Pomona promote students’ discovery of the opportunities and challenges within the field and the development of creative and innovative solutions to those conditions. Through collaborative learning and intense mentoring, PolyX engages students beyond the classroom and prepares them for professional and civic success.

PolyX FYE Showcase

First-year students participate in a Signature Polytechnic Experience (PolyX) within their FYE courses and present their work at the PolyX Showcase each fall semester. This early immersion in Cal Poly Pomona's learn-by-doing approach and polytechnic advantage prepares students for success from their first semester.
