Did You Know?

Dean Forouzan GolshaniCollege of Engineering Dean Forouzan Golshani was recently appointed to advise the Assembly Select Committee on Aerospace chaired by Assemblyman Al Muratsuchi (D-Torrance).

“My interactions with this committee of experts will enable us to align our academic and educational objectives with the state’s highest needs,” Dr. Golshani said. “I don’t see my role as that of an advocate specifically for just the university. The advisory committee must make sound recommendations for all the region. Generally, I see this committee as an advisory committee to bridge the area of technology with the area of setting policy. That is a powerful mix. If there is an opportunity to help engineering colleges at CSUs and UCs, that is an added benefit.”
