A degree in Engineering Plus in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU Boulder prepares students for exciting, diverse and innovative professional careers and for graduate study in a wide variety of disciplines. In Engineering Plus, students learn to create what they dream through hands-on, team-based design. An e+ degree is made up of Foundational Coursework, Engineering Core courses, a selected e+ Emphasis, plus a chosen e+ Concentration either within or external to engineering. An e+ Emphasis establishes a disciplinary engineering foundation, while an e+ Concentration allows students to explore an additional passion.
Students select their engineering passion by selecting an e+ Emphasis in Aerospace, Architectural, Civil, Electrical, Environmental or Mechanical engineering. Students also explore an additional passion through their e+ Concentration selection. Students often choose Entrepreneurship, CU Teach Engineering, Business, Pre-Med, Sustainability or many others as their e+ Concentration. These degree components provide a pathway through engineering for students interested in interdisciplinary, hands-on engineering design. Graduates from the Engineering Plus program will find opportunities in many engineering enterprises, as well as unique positions enabled by their e+ Emphasis and Concentration choices. Students gain confidence and professional skills emphasizing leadership, collaboration and communication, through multiple team-based courses.
