Earning a high quality engineering degree at a distance has come a long way since correspondence courses and VHS tapes. Engineering Anywhere is an online distance learning platform that is flexible, easy to access from anywhere, and integrated with social and mobile technologies.
The new online global platform builds on three decades of learning excellence offered by The Center for Advanced Engineering and Technology Education (CAETE) and the University of Colorado Boulder’s College of Engineering and Applied Science. Visit EngineeringAnywhere.Colorado.edu to learn more.
Engineering Anywhere enables individuals, who for a variety of reasons are unable to participate in a traditional classroom setting, to earn:
The Engineering Anywhere platform is designed to make distance learning more relevant, adaptive, and personalized for students through individual course content, social sites, blog, online course catalog, live class recordings and a course library of recorded lectures. Engineering Anywhere is also mobile device friendly and accessible by smart phones and tablets.
Interested students can still enroll for the Spring 2014 semester through the first week of classes, which begin Jan. 13; they can also apply for the Fall 2014 degree and certificate programs, says Nalini Indorf Kaplan, associate director of strategy and engagement of CAETE.
“Engineering Anywhere provides aspiring professionals with many applied educational tools to help them enhance their careers,” she adds. “It also exemplifies CU-Boulder’s continued leadership in the field of distance education, as we celebrate CAETE’s 30th anniversary.”
Distance students are given the same support, services and access to university staff and faculty as their classroom peers, but Engineering Anywhere allows distance students to watch classes live, actively participate in classes, and attend lectures on campus where possible, all in pursuit of the same high quality degree or certificate from CU-Boulder.
“Engineering Anywhere is designed to help optimize each student’s experience,” says Dr. David J. Fusco, director of CAETE. “It is more than a new website – we’re rolling out brand new content and an in-depth collection of tutorials, guides, and ideas for the student who wants to make the most of their educational experience.”
