The College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology (ECST) offers accredited programs in civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, computer science and industrial technology, as well as California’s only public university programs in aviation administration, fire protection administration and graphic communication.  We serve over 3,000 undergraduate majors and over 800 graduate students. Our rigorous curriculum prepares students for a broad range of successful technical and management careers in competitive job markets. 

In 2016, Cal State LA’s engineering programs were ranked 7th in the nation and 4th in the West, among public non-doctoral institutions by U.S. News and World Report.

Cal State LA relies on a strong foundation of public and private support to deliver a quality education to all of our students. By supporting the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology, you can help us transform students’ lives, drive cutting-edge research, and train a workforce that will power the California economy.

Funding Priorities:

  • Acceleration Initiative: pre-college and first-year programs designed to strengthen students’ engagement with engineering, build strong fundamentals and develop college community
  • Makerspace/Engineering Design Studio: a state-of-the-art workspace to inspire and promote hands-on learning, collaboration and innovation, with tools and spaces for student design projects
  • Senior Design: a program that places student teams in an industry setting, where they combine theoretical knowledge and hands-on skills to create real-world solutions for client-identified problems
  • Institute for Urban Sustainability: an interdisciplinary research institute with a focus on sustainability issues facing the L.A. region
