Advisory Council considers summer employment for incoming MPS students

Cal Poly’s MPS Industry Advisory Council is considering a plan to offer summer employment opportunities to incoming MPS students.

Employment would likely run from June through August and would take place at one of several large-scale dairy processing facilities in the area. Incoming students would then come to Cal Poly in mid-September to begin classes.

Working in a large-scale dairy processing facility before beginning the MPS program would provide students with real-world experience and context that would focus and enhance on-campus learning.

Several members of the MPS Industry Advisory Council expressed interest in participating in the program. The council represents a dozen leading dairy product manufacturers in California and around the country.

For more information, contact MPS program manager Tom Johnson at (805) 756-6148.

There’s still time to apply for Fall 2014!

Domestic and international students still have time to apply to the MPS program for admission to the Fall 2014 class.

Domestic students can apply until May 1 and will then have until July 1 to submit supplementary materials (letters of recommendation, GRE scores, personal statements).

International students now have until April 1 to submit their applications, and until June 1 to submit supplementary materials.

If you have questions about the program or the application process, feel free to call me at (805) 756-6148.
