Engineer Your World

Engineer Your World (EYW) is an innovative, student-centered curriculum that engages learners in authentic engineering experiences and inspires them to embrace an engineer’s habits of mind. Collaborative, student-directed projects build resilient problem-solving skills and empower students to think like engineers, to adopt engineering processes, and to pursue engineering disciplines for the betterment of our world.


The Femineer® Program is a teacher training program that was created and funded by Cal Poly Pomona’s College of Engineering in 2013 to inspire young women to pursue STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math). The program provides 6-12th grade students with project-based learning, women in engineering undergraduate student mentors, and opportunities to visit the University of Iowa. The University of Iowa is the first affiliate university outside of California.
