College committee opportunities

Several College of Engineering committees have student members and we want to hear your suggestions on how to improve various aspects of the College of Engineering. 

  • The application deadline for the 2016-17 school year has passed.  Applications for 2017-18 will be available in April 2017.
  • For more information, contact Engineering Student Services.

Please note:

  • To be eligible to serve on a college committee, you must be enrolled as a full-time student at Cal for both the fall and spring semester of the year for which you are applying.
