We're celebrating the College's 75th Anniversary
Throughout 2021, we will celebrate the Charles W. Davidson College of Engineering's history from its humble beginnings in 1946. You can look forward to new web pages in the Spring with a robust historic timeline and photos, and a college-wide student video competition with the theme: “My club/my major/my department is the best because...” Five winners will be announced in February during National Engineers week, and 1st prize is $500! We are also planning a double issue of the alumni magazine, Engineering at San Jose State, with a feature from every department.
The Passing of the College’s Namesake
We were deeply saddened to learn of Charles W. (Chuck) Davidson’s passing on March 25, 2021, and the college community is mourning his loss. An avid reader and lifelong learner, Chuck was a student of life and an ardent supporter of San José State University.

The GO program is the Engineering Dean’s way to nudge you into attending that lecture you heard about, joining that club, or setting aside that time you know you’ll need to work on your LinkedIn profile. Each of these actions (and so many more) could actually help you on the path to your career.
There are a lot of opinions swirling around how, when and why to get an internship. For this series of articles, the College of Engineering teamed up with the Career Center to address some important myths or assumptions that might be steering you off course.
