Expressive Technology Studios
Grounded in Cal Poly’s Learn by Doing mission, the new Jack and Felicia Cashin Expressive Technology Studios (ETS) – at the heart of campus – will create an interdisciplinary space that brings together technology with the liberal arts.
DEVELOPING VERSATILE PROFESSIONALS
The College of Liberal Arts has taken the lead in developing the educational intersection between technology, humanity and the arts through Expressive Technology programs.
Such programs include the Liberal Arts and Engineering Studies (LAES) Program and four minors that explore the connections between Science, Technology and Society (STS).
Our goal is to make sure students have the technical skills they need to succeed in today's world; the experience to collaborate in diverse settings; and the understanding to make reasoned and ethical decisions.
A dynamic, flexible workspace that fosters creativity and collaboration would maximize these efforts.
