To accomplish this goal, they are committed to fostering interdisciplinary education and communication relative to integrated facilities delivery.
EARTHQUAKE ENGINEERING RESEARCH INSTITUTE
EERI CPP is a student lead organization that offers civil engineering and construction students an in-depth experience in earthquake and structural engineering. Our chapter hosts a variety of programs such as technical tours of off-campus facilities and construction sites, meetings with guest speakers, outreach events, and tutorial workshops. These programs help students at Cal Poly Pomona gain valuable skills and experience.
ENGINEERS WITHOUT BORDERS
Engineers Without Borders is not your typical community service driven club. Not only do they service local communities, but they also serve communities across the globe. In doing this, they empower communities to design and implement sustainable engineering projects. They help communities to help themselves by working closely with communities as a team.
GEOWALL COMPETITION TEAM
GeoWall is a civil engineering student competition team whose objective is to design and build a mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining wall model using paper reinforcements taped to a poster board wall facing. Our team members have the opportunity to learn about the design of mechanically stabilized earth (MSE) retaining walls from theoretical design to practical application. All class level students are invited to join! No previous experience is necessary. *SAFETY TRAININGS (MANDATORY): EH&S Online Training; Geotech Lab Training
HABITAT FOR HUMANITY
Habitat for Humanity

STRUCTUAL ENGINEERING ASSOCIATION OF CAL POLY POMONA
SEACPP takes pride in exposing young, passionate students to the world of structural engineering. The fundamental goal of SEACPP is to enable engineering students to contribute individually and collectively towards a professional and scholastic development. At our meetings, students are introduced to members in the structural engineering industry. Along with our meetings, field trips help students visualize where they might be working one day and get them excited about structural engineering.
STEEL BRIDGE COMPETITION TEAM
Steel Bridge challenges students to participate in a competition to design and fabricate a 1/10 scale steel bridge to sustain specific loading conditions and conform to several other strict requirements. In order to be competitive, a team must perform well in categories such as construction time, overall deflection, weight, and aesthetics. This past year, they won third place at PSWC 2017 and are determined to do even better at next year’s competition.
SAFETY TRAININGS (MANDATORY): Fabrication Safety Training; Yellow Card Training
WOMEN'S TRANSPORTATION SEMINAR
WTS Cal Poly Pomona is a newly created student chapter of WTS that aims at bringing confidence, education, leadership, help, and guidance to women and men at all levels of the industry. Our main focus is on current Cal Poly Pomona students and high school students. We want to teach them the benefits of WTS, and how being involved in their local chapter will provide them with immense knowledge and friendships.
