Message from the Dean

Interim Dean Eugene Olevsky

Welcome to the website of San Diego State University’s College of Engineering, the fastest growing of SDSU’s seven colleges and the oldest College of Engineering in San Diego!  For over 50 years, the College has been offering a wide range of degrees and programs (see the Fact Sheet) through a blend of rigorous and project-based curricula to educate a diverse group of students. Our graduates are innovators and professionals who serve and fuel the economic and technological development of Southern California and regions beyond.

The SDSU College of Engineering is dedicated to innovative education, research, and dissemination of knowledge.  We instill critical thinking in our graduates to recognize human and societal needs; design innovative, sustainable engineering solutions; embrace an international perspective; and create value through entrepreneurial efforts.  Student success is at the heart of our mission. Many undergraduates join teams of talented graduate students, exceptional faculty, and visiting scholars to conduct ground-breaking research.

The College of Engineering offers a high quality education at an affordable cost relying on state support, private support and philanthropy in order to maintain tuition and fees at an affordable level.

San Diego is a thriving, internationally recognized center of leading-edge technology and many students find unparalleled opportunities for real-world experience before they enter the workforce.

Thank you very much for your visit and I invite you to explore this website and learn more about the College and all the exciting projects that are being carried out by the Engineering faculty and students.
