College of Engineering 75th Anniversary

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.

Remembering Alumnus and Generous Friend, Charles W. Davidson 1930-2021
