CSULB College of Engineering
The California State University, Long Beach College of Engineering is CSULB's third-largest college, with 2018 enrollment of nearly 5,000 undergraduate and graduate students. It has been led by Dean Forouzan Golshani since 2007. The College's mission is "to develop innovators who design and implement practical solutions to meet the ever-changing societal challenges of Engineering."
Established in 1957 with 163 students, the College of Engineering offers Bachelor of Science degrees in aerospace engineering, biomedical engineering, chemical engineering, civil engineering, computer engineering, computer science, construction management, electrical engineering, engineering technology, and mechanical engineering. Master’s of Science degrees are offered in aerospace engineering, chemical engineering civil engineering, computer science, and electrical engineering. Students may obtain a PhD in Engineering and Computational Mathematics through a joint doctoral program offered with Claremont Graduate University.
The American Society of Engineering Education ranks the CSULB College of Engineering fifth in the nation for its percentage of female tenure/tenure-track faculty and is sixth in the nation for awarding undergraduate engineering degrees to Hispanic students. Diverse Issues in Higher Education also ranked the College third for awarding engineering degrees to minority students. The college of engineering was ranked by U.S. News as the 137th best engineering college in the United States for postgraduate students. CSULB's COE also offers options to complete one's electrical engineering or mechanical engineering degree at a separate center in the Antelope Valley city of Lancaster, California.
In the face of a nationwide shortage of STEM professionals, the CSULB College of Engineering is working with the Long Beach Unified School District and Long Beach City College to build a “pipeline” of students seeking engineering and sciences as a profession. The CSULB College of Engineering also works closely with industry partners such as Boeing and Northrop-Grumman to ensure that programs remain aligned to new engineering opportunities. Boeing has supported internship programs and donated laboratories and equipment to help prepare students for future employment in the aerospace industry, including equipment from the shutdown of Boeing’s C-17 Globemaster III program.
