There’s a shortage of geotechnical engineers in our industry, and our future will be determined by how effectively college students are encouraged to pursue geotechnical careers. CalGeo works with colleges and universities throughout the state to foster interest in the profession and help shape the industry’s future leaders.CalGeo Student Chapters
CalGeo partnered with Cal Poly Pomona in 2007 and UCLA and Fresno State in 2009 to form the first CalGeo student chapters. In 2010 a chapter was added at Cal State Fullerton. Working in coordination with CalGeo's student outreach liaisons, engineering students host talks and site tours to advance their understanding of the industry and learn key skills to prepare them for entry into the consulting engineering profession. CalGeo continues to work to expand the number of student chapters statewide, and we are working to include Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, San Diego State, UC Davis and UC Berkeley.
