Lyles College of Engineering


Special Projects

Students and faculty in the Lyles College of Engineering often receive requests from the industry members, the community and departments within Fresno State to design educational and innovative projects. Some of these projects include student club competitions like the Fresno State Tiny House Project, Poverello House Shelter  Build and various other projects from manufacturers, transportation, and agriculture entities. 

Projects Day is our annual event that takes place each May. Students have the opportunity to showcase their work to attendees. Each year, more than 100 projects are showcased and each year K-12 students, organizations and companies throughout the Valley come to enjoy the newly developed and foward thinking projects.
