We invite you to partner with us in a variety of programs aimed at building the K-12 pipeline and supporting students from diverse backgrounds in choosing the engineering profession. By participating in industry panels, hosting tours at your company, mentoring students in projects, or providing financial sponsorship, you can offer insight and support to students in their pursuit of engineering careers. Opportunities to get involved include:
Integrated Teaching & Learning Laboratory
The ITL Laboratory hosts or collaborates with other college programs on many K-12 engineering education initiatives, offering a wide range of hands-on engineering opportunities for K-12 teachers and students, faculty, and the general public. Activities include the development of the national TeachEngineering.com digital library collection and the TEAMS (Tomorrow’s Engineering... creAte. iMagine. Succeed.) initiative in local public schools.

Broadening Opportunity through Leadership and Diversity
The Broadening Opportunity through Leadership and Diversity (BOLD) Center in the College of Engineering and Applied Science creates an inclusive environment where diverse students can achieve their dreams. The BOLD Center fosters success by providing academic resources, student leadership opportunities, and a supportive community to break down the barriers that keep too many talented young students from reaching their aspirations.

Partnership with Colorado Mesa University
This program offers students a unique opportunity to earn a Bachelor of Science in mechanical engineering degree from the University of Colorado Boulder while completing all requirements on the campus of Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction. Students benefit from small class sizes and personal contact with faculty while experiencing a curriculum equal to that delivered on the CU-Boulder campus, from hands-on engineering design proejcts in the first year to senior design projects that pull together four years of learning.
