Earn-Learn Apprenticeship

CU Engineering provides financial support for students while they work part-time in the college. Students work for a sponsoring department or program in ways that both further their own education and serve the needs of the sponsoring unit.  

  • Examples of positions include providing lab or course support, tutoring, preparing educational materials, and participating in outreach activities with K-12 students. Interested in research activities? Refer to the discovery learning page. Funding for the apprenticeship program is provided by both the sponsoring unit and individual/corporate donors or the dean of the college.
  • Departments are responsible for screening, interviewing, hiring and supervising their earn-learn apprentices. Please check with the department you are hoping to work with for more information.
