Message from the Dean
Welcome to the College of Engineering, Computer Science, and Technology at Cal State LA! Our College embodies the principle that students, faculty, and staff are invested in our motto: Commit to Excellence and Engage with Community. We encourage students to work together and to seek out and utilize all the resources on campus, and faculty and staff to work together to implement the most effective practices for student learning. Faculty and students together conduct the advanced research needed to turn the world’s dreams into reality. We reach for excellence in everything we do.
ECST has strong ties to Southern California employers who provide scholarships, internships, and sponsored senior design projects. Our Dean’s Advisory Board brings in industry and community executives to help keep us abreast of trends and ideas in the local economy and more globally. Our partners help ensure that the education we provide is the education students need to build the future. Our alumni occupy important positions all over Southern California and beyond, and we welcome their involvement back on campus.
Whether you’re a prospective student thinking about attending ECST, a new student exploring our College, or a continuing student already engaged in all we have to offer, feel free to contact the College of ECST to find out more about our degree programs, our student success center activities, and opportunities for student involvement in the College.
ECST has developed seven commitments to guide our strategic decision-making. Philanthropic initiatives designed to help us meet our commitments are welcome! Please contact us if you’d like to invest in the future of Los Angeles!
