CED - Cabrillo Engineering and Design

Cabrillo quad

Cabrillo Engineering & Design (CED) is a four-year, rigorous, high-tech, specialized program designed for students who have an interest in the field of engineering and design.

Our program is nationally recognized as a Certified Project Lead The Way Program, which allows for engineering students to earn college credit while in high school. The CED course of study prepares students to meet A-G requirements and to succeed in the industry and related fields. CED utilizes dynamic and interactive project-based instruction and hands-on learning that maintains real-world applications.

Women in STEAM

The Women of STEAM started as a dream from three Cabrillo girls who were inspired by the Port of Long Beach Women in Trade Event back in 2014.   Gabriella Gonzalez, Madelyn Salud, and Angel Lamsam developed a plan to create an event that would have two goals, inform the girls of the opportunities in STEM careers and to empower the girls to study STEM in college. The girls took on the challenge to send out more than 100 letters and emails inviting engineering and tech companies in the local area to have lunch with our female students and talk about what it takes to make it in a STEM career.  Their Mantra “Rise Above” was the very first theme of the First Annual Women of STEAM Event.

NAE at UCI 2022

Several engineering students from Cabrillo High School attended the National Academy of Engineering (NAE) National Meeting held May 4 to May 5 in Irvine.

The event celebrated the inclusion of women in the engineering fields, as well as the engineering advancements that continue to shape the future.

In attendance were NAE members, NAE’s Engineer Girl ambassadors and local students from Long Beach, Santa Ana and the University of California, Irvine.

Those in attendance heard a series of lectures from young women in engineering. The lectures are part of the NAE’s Gilbreth Lecture series, named in honor of Lillian M. Gilbreth, the first woman elected to the NAE. The lecturers presented on topics covering space-based astronomical observatories, sea-level rise adaptation pathways, new approaches to Alzheimer’s and shape-shifting soft robots.

SpaceX COO Gwynne Shotwell also presented a keynote address on space exploration and the considerations and risks of interstellar travel.

The NAE is a nonprofit institution that provides engineering leadership in service to the nation. The institution’s mission is to provide independent advice on matters involving engineering and technology, and promote a vibrant engineering profession and public appreciation of engineering.
