Why Engineering Plus? In Engineering Plus, you learn to create what you dream through hands-on, team-based design. An Engineering Plus degree is 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 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, and is seeking ABET accreditation as soon as the first students have graduated.
