As Efrain Gonzalez, Warren ’17, begins his undergraduate education at UC San Diego this fall, he plans to apply his passion for mathematics to mechanical or aerospace engineering.

A graduate of The Preuss School UCSD, Gonzalez credits his high school robotics club with sparking his interest in engineering.

Gonzalez had the choice of attending Cal Poly San Luis Obispo or UC San Diego. “Both schools have great engineering programs, I come from a low-income family and we have financial struggles,” says Gonzalez. “The scholarship is a great benefit to me and my family, so attending UC San Diego made the most sense for me.”
