Why Engineering Plus? In Engineering Plus, you learn to create what you dream through hands-on, team-based design. Engineering Plus is an ABET accredited degree made up of Foundational Coursework, Engineering Core courses, a selected e+ Emphasis (in Aerospace, Architectural, Civil, Electrical, Environmental or Mechanical Engineering), 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, preparing them for a broad range of career opportunities post-graduation. Students gain confidence and professional skills emphasizing leadership, collaboration, and communication through multiple team-based design courses.
Students meet with an e+ advisor, prior to registration, to ensure their customized course choices meet the program requirements. Engineering Plus curriculum meets the standards of excellence expected from all CU Boulder engineering degrees.
