College of Science


The College of Science, being only one of eight polytechnic universities in the United States, is committed to community outreach. Through its multi-discipline approach, the College of Science reaches out to the surrounding region with Cal Poly Pomona's ‘learn-by-doing’ philosophy.  Our faculty and students train and educate future researchers as well as collaborate with the educational community to enhance the field of science.
