CSU Channel Islands has proposed the launch of a new engineering program in mechatronics engineering, the interdisciplinary study of mechanics, control theory, computer science and electronics. A study revealed that about half of Ventura County companies plan to hire engineers. Wanting to promote STEM fields to its significant female and/or Latino student population (both of which are underrepresented in STEM careers), the university is investing in preparing more engineers to strengthen these local businesses. Once approved, the program will begin accepting applications for fall 2018.
