SPECTRA is back with recent news and highlights from the College of Engineering and Computer Science at California State University, Northridge! This is a special year for the University as we celebrate our 50th anniversary. This marks my third year at CSUN and I have really enjoyed getting to know the community and working with you. We have done very well during the past year. The quality of our programs and our graduates, and the dedication and commitment of our faculty and staff to serve our students is truly outstanding. Enrollments are up significantly from a year ago with over 2,400 students in the college, and thanks to our ACCESS program we have a thriving outreach effort at over a dozen area high schools.
California State University, Northridge occupies a park-like 356 acres.
• We are located in the northern part of Los Angeles’ San Fernando Valley, a suburban area shadowed by the Santa Susana Mountains.
