ECS Week

February 18-22, 2019


The College of Engineering and Computer Science (ECS) celebrates ECS Week through a variety of events highlighting the important contributions in these academic and professional fields.  Though ECS Week is largely influenced by the nationally recognized Engineers Week, annually taking place in the same week of George Washington’s birthday, in ECS we also recognize the equally important contributions made in computer science.  Founded in 1951 by the National Society of Professional Engineers, National Engineers Week highlights the positive contributions engineers offer to society and emphasizes the importance of learning math, science, and technical skills. 

We invite engineers, computer scientists, students, faculty, staff, educators, and leaders to join in this celebration!

Learning to Think Entrepreneurially in Engineering & Computer Science

Entrepreneurial thinking is essential in today’s ever-changing world. Thinking entrepreneurially influences our perspectives in a way that highlights opportunities, fosters creativity, ignites ambition, increases resilience, and encourages resourcefulness to adapt to the on-going enhancements in engineering and computer science fields. A by-product of entrepreneurial thinking is the powerful incentive to learn and remain relevant as an individual, company, corporation, or industry.

The Age of Disruption

We no longer live in the Age of Information, but the Age of Disruption. Legacy businesses are vulnerable to becoming obsolete such as Blockbuster, Sears, Toys R Us and more, far more. All US business are faced with loss of market share and an inability to attract critical new generation workers unless they proactively “Self Disrupt”, meaning, invoke formal organizational transformation. IT is at the forefront of this sweeping phenomenon. Join an experienced IT industry leader for a discussion on these disruptive changes and the impact / opportunity it creates for fresh CSUF graduates to take advantage of these changes to gain meaningful employment.
