Learn by Doing
Cal Poly is driven by its core philosophy of Learn by Doing — a powerful combination of academic expertise and hands-on experience.
At Cal Poly, most classes are taught by professors in small classrooms, not packed lecture halls, and from their first moments on campus, most students are challenged to put what they learn into practice in a real-world setting.
