General Engineering Plus is a flexible, customizable design-focused degree. It is comprised of four or more design courses, five core engineering courses, about five courses within a disciplinary emphasis (aerospace, mechanical, architectural, civil, or environmental engineering) and 12 or more credits in a pre-approved concentration such as CU Teach Engineering, Engineering Management, Business, Technology, or Arts and Media.
The General Engineering Plus degree can be a great fit for students who want to become licensed secondary science or math teachers, have ambitions to do engineering that may not fit into traditional degree structures, or who plan to attend professional school outside of engineering (such as law, medicine, or business) after completing an engineering degree. Or, it may be right for students seeking to create their own unique engineering pathway.
Armed with professional skills emphasizing leadership, collaboration, and communications attained through multiple team-based design courses, GE+ students will acquire the confidence to apply their engineering education to a broad range of career options such as secondary science, math or engineering teaching; engineering design, analysis, modeling and measurement; or technical sales.
