CALIFORNIA STATE UNIVERSITY LONG BEACH
COLLEGE OF ENGINEERING
Wrapping Up Fall Semester
I’m always amazed when the end of the semester is upon us – time flies when you are having fun, they say! I’ve been busy engaging external relationships for the college, including our established advisory council, new potential corporate partnerships, and our donors at events like the Winter Festival Concert. I am grateful for the dedicated work of our faculty and students featured in this issue. And after nearly two years of pandemic-induced virtual classes, the College of Engineering is pleased to announce a planned return to in-person learning for Spring Semester 2022. I wish each and every one of you all the best for the holiday season, and I look forward to seeing you on campus in the spring!

Happy Holidays!
