RE: Engineering Education & Professional Practice

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Neil,
I had the conversation with my class today and COD (College of the
Desert) is considered a "Mirror Image" curriculum for Cal-Poly. The
students who are in the class are completing their first two years at
COD and expect to enter Cal-Poly to begin their third year.
My other concerns still stand 8>|

Dennis:

I guess you missed my point.  When I talked about a "mirror image"
curriculum, I was thinking of  the first two years of the Cal Poly
curriculum being taught at a community college and then directly
transferable to CP.  I believe West Valley College has this.  
I also believe that the student had to make some sort of contract with
the
schools; maybe someone else can elaborate.  

I'd also be interested to note how many Cal Poly ARCE's have their
California S.E.  I'm more interested in the per centage of your
graduating
class.  Mine, I believe, is 100%.
