Learn by Doing. It's more than our motto. It is the foundation of education in Cal Poly's College of Science and Mathematics. It's what you experienced here, what you value in the Cal Poly alumni you've hired or the industry partnerships you've established on campus.
It means bright, motivated students working closely with dedicated professors, doing in the laboratories and community what they study in the classroom. It is hands-on experience in real-world research that gives students the skills and confidence to become leaders in science, education, industry and medicine. It is the reason Cal Poly College of Science & Mathematics students thrive in this increasingly scientific and technological world.
We need your help to continue providing these Learn by Doing opportunities. Your support makes a tremendous difference to the next generation of scientists, medical professionals, teachers and industry leaders.
