Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity
|CSULB BUILD Program offers intensive research training opportunities for undergraduate students interested in pursuing a research career in health-related research. Health-related research uses innovative methods to examine the cause, diagnosis, prevention, and treatment of diseases to improve health and wellbeing. It is conducted across a number of different disciplines (e.g., engineering and the behavioral, biological, clinical, physical, public health and social sciences) and can include basic, applied, and translational approaches to studying several health issues facing our communities and our nation.
Center for Human Factors in Advanced Aeronautics Technologies
|Performs ongoing research to measure human performance in complex systems such as the Next Generation Airspace Transportation System (NextGen). We also participate in the training of the future workforce in aeronautics and other NASA-related disciplines, through the training of students in human factors
|Program is offered to incoming freshmen as a Learning Community Cluster. This type of structure enhances the opportunity for students to build community among students, among student and faculty, and among faculty involved with these students. The goal of the program is to improve students' academic performance and increase their ability to graduate in four years. It is an academic year-long program commencing with the Summer Bridge Program in late August. Students who are accepted into EB will participate in a 5-day Summer Bridge residential program and continue through the academic year as a single cohort thru Fall and Spring.
|Engineering Honors Program
|Offers an opportunity for academically successful and motivated students interested in completing their program of study in four years. In addition to honors-level courses, students will be engaged in the application of engineering through a year-long research project, culminating in a thesis. The purpose of this program is to prime students for success as practicing professionals in engineering industry as well as strengthen their potential success in graduate studies.
Hispanic Serving Institutions
|The Hispanic Serving Institutions (HSI) Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) program at CSULB helps first generation educated Latino students successfully pursue degrees and careers in STEM fields.
