The Engineering Leadership Program will prepare you for leadership. You'll take specialized leadership courses, attend college-sponsored leadership seminars, and learn from mentors who have experience relevant to your interests. 

You can apply to ELP after you are accepted into the College of Engineering and Applied Science. In the fall semester, you'll participate in Taste of ELP, which will help determine whether the Engineering Leadership Program is the right fit for you. The “Taste of ELP” provides a semester-long, four- to five-session (most are 1-hour long, held in the evening ) introduction to help determine whether ELP is the right fit for you. Sessions include a preview of the Engineering Leadership Gateway course, an outside leadership speaker, and a roundtable with recent ELP graduates.

Are you ready to be a part of the Engineering Leadership Program? Fill out an online application prior to the end of the first week of the fall semester.

Are you already enrolled in CU Engineering? Fill out an online application and then meet with one of the ELP co-directors. We recommend applying before the end of your fourth semester, so you have enough time to complete the program. 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.  See PLC Students on the Program Elements page.
