Each year, the CSULB Engineering Honors Track gets a little larger. The 6-year-old program offers students a fast-track plan toward earning an undergraduate degree completion, complete with a thesis and special events.
This fall, the program includes 124 students, including 38 freshmen. Denil Poudel, one of those freshmen, said he’s excited to be participating in the program. A graduate of the California Academy of Math and Science, and the grandson of an industrial engineer, Poudel said he’s always been drawn to engineering. He built things with Legos when he was young, then moved on to autonomous robots. Continue reading “Engineering Honors Track Celebrates Arrival of New Students”
Most students wait until their graduate studies to complete a thesis. But not if you’re an engineering student enrolled in the CSULB Engineering Honors Track.
On Friday, nine Engineering Honors students completed what’s often a rite of passage in graduate school: presenting their theses before an academic audience. Representing almost all engineering disciplines, students presented on topics ranging from aging of composites and smartphone security to rover navigation and cardiac tissue engineering. Launched in 2013, the Engineering Honors Track now includes more than 100 students. Continue reading “Honors Students Present their Research Results at Showcase”
More than 100 of the 750 students enrolled in the CSULB University Honors Program are studying in the College of Engineering. On Friday, the College held its annual Engineering Honors Track (EHT) open house to introduce students to faculty, administrators, and each other.
“You are here to be challenged and I hope we are delivering those challenges,” said Dean Forouzan Golshani. “Do the best you can and aim high and you will get there.”
The College of Engineering was the first at CSULB to establish an honors track. About nine students graduated from EHT last year. Predictions are for at least a dozen graduates this year and triple that next year. Continue reading “Engineering Honors Track Holds Open House for Students and Faculty”
