LAunchPad at Cal State LA

Welcome to Cal State LA’s College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology (ECST)! LAunchPad is a two week summer program where we will introduce you to a few of the exciting ways that engineers and computer scientists can make the world a better place. You’ll learn about computing and data science, how to make your cell phone control a robot, and how to test and keep clean the air we breathe and the water we drink.

Along the way you’ll make new friends, meet some of our ECST students and faculty, and get to know our campus. You’ll also hear from some engineers working in the field and learn about their jobs and experiences. We hope you enjoy your two weeks on our campus, and that you consider applying to ECST this Fall when it’s time for your college applications.
