Are you ready to be a part of the Engineering Leadership Program? Here's where you can apply and get started.
Students can apply to ELP the summer before their first semester at CU. These students will participate in "Taste of ELP" in the fall semester. The “Taste of ELP” provides a semester-long, four- to five-session introduction to the program to help students determine whether ELP is the right fit for them. The sessions include a one-hour session with “gateway” instructor Angela Thieman Dino, an outside leadership speaker, a one-on-one session to help students plan their participation in the program, and completion of the ELP application.
Students interested the Engineering Leadership Program and who want to participate in "Taste of ELP" should fill out Part One of the online application prior to the start of the fall semester. At the end of the fall semester, those student who wish to continue will then fill out Part Two of the application, and if accepted, begin working on their certificate requirements the following semester.
Students already enrolled in CU Engineering can apply to ELP by completing the full application. Students should apply before the end of their fourth semester to ensure they have enough time to complete all the elements of the program. Students should plan to take the Engineering Leadership Gateway course as soon as possible after applying.
Presidents Leadership Class (PLC) students who are in the College of Engineering and Applied Science may also pursue an ELP certificate. PLC students must apply to ELP by their fourth semester at CU-Boulder. See "PLC Students" on the Program Elements page.
