What Students Are Saying

3.75 Average Rating
For majors like engineering, the academics are really tough, and a degree in engineering from Cal Poly is really valued in industry. Other majors, however, are much easier and require much less work.

Professors are knowledgeable and labs support what is being taught in the classroom.
