Attending Cal Poly Pomona was one of the best times in my life because they provided me an excellent education in a fun environment. The best thing about my school that they are known for is creating a team work/family environment. I loved the fact that all the classes were small and hands on, so you really got to know who you were working with and that all the students were just as dedicated. I am still friends with all the people that I took classes with and came across at Cal Poly Pomona, great networking environment.

Cal Poly Pomona is best known for their hands on learning style. For many people, the best way to learn is through experience and CPP gives you plen of experience in your field of study. There are many projects and internships that allow students to work and learn.

Brittany

My school is most known for its practical teaching. It provides a more technical experience as opposed to research based. Therefore, there are rarely any long term papers. We tend to do much discussion based education, not the typical lecture. Also, I would like to say that the semi-isolated atmosphere of the campus is one of the better parts. It allows you to become much closer to people and it is a pleasant environment to study in. This pleasant environment is mainly due to ecological friendly practices and the luxurious amounts of green space everywhere.

Industry knows us for actually knowing what to do in the field. Many colleges have taken away most of their labs because of cost issues. Our school has a lab with almost every class. This helps us to physically and mentally understand what we are working on. Being able to actually construct different machines or structures helps us to understand how they work and how they doesn't. This allows us to create new ways of constructing machines or structures. Industry rather hirer us after graduation because they don't have to pay us for training.
