Building, Design & Construction

California's building industry relies on employees with knowledge from across disciplines: industrial design, engineering, art, and communication. The CSU's programs in architecture, construction management, regional planning, engineering and landscape architecture provide this skilled workforce.

With about 1,500 students, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo's College of Architecture and Environmental Design is the largest program of its type in the nation with seven degree programs. An estimated one in 20 architects in the country are Cal Poly San Luis Obispo graduates, as are one in five in California.
