From the Director’s Desk

“As we look to the future, we can think of no greater investment than the education of our future engineers and computer scientists. This grant will have an enduring impact on the academic success and career choices of the talented youth in our region, and ultimately, we hope an enduring impact on the growth and health of California’s economy. As these talented students, who represent both minorities and females, matriculate to the university, they will, in turn, serve as role models for others in their communities. This collaborative partnership between Cal State Northridge, Glendale Community College, College of the Canyons, LA Pierce College, and Moorpark College will be instrumental in creating a larger, more inclusive pool of STEM graduates.”
