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 currently supports the efforts of our student chapters at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo, Cal Poly Pomona, UCLA, Cal State Northridge, Cal State Fullerton, San Diego State University, and UC San Diego. 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. Each year students from each chapter are invited to attend the annual CalGeo conference where they attend professional presentations, compete for awards, and directly interact with industry leaders in the Geotechnical Engineering community. CalGeo continues to work on expanding the number of student chapters statewide, and we are striving establish active chapters in northern California.
