College of Science

The College of Science at Cal Poly Pomona is committed to providing a first-rate science education. With the university’s learn-by-doing philosophy, our programs advance science and foster real-world education. Our professionally active faculty members prepare students to become qualified science professionals.

 

 

Many of the academic accomplishments in the College of Science are made possible by the generosity of our donors. With philanthropic support the College of Science can award scholarships to deserving students, purchase state-of-the-art equipment and conduct research with student involvement.

 

We encourage you to support the College of Science so we can continue to enhance the student experience and prepare the next generation of scientists and science educators.

 

Much of what we achieve is made possible by the financial support we receive from our donors!
