Engineering Plus faculty and staff talking with future students.Engineering Plus is a degree-granting program in the College of Engineering and Applied Science at CU Boulder that gives students the opportunity to simultaneously pursue an engineering degree while exploring a concentration outside of engineering. The flexibility and choice woven throughout the program provides students with a customizable interdisciplinary degree and a broad range of career opportunities post-graduation.

What makes up an Engineering Plus degree?

Students in e+ take Foundational Coursework, study Engineering Core courses, select an e+ Emphasis (in Aerospace, Architectural, Civil, Electrical, Environmental or Mechanical engineering), plus choose an e+ Concentration either within or external to engineering. Students often choose CU Teach Engineering Math, CU Teach Engineering Science, Entrepreneurship, Economics, Pre-Med, Sustainability, Business or many others as their e+ concentration.

Engineering Plus is for students who...

  • Want to pursue a customizable, design-rich engineering degree
  • Are passionate about an area of study outside of engineering
  • Have a dream to practice engineering that may not fit into traditional engineering structures or careers
  • Are planning to attend a professional school post-graduation (e.g. law, medicine or business)
  • Want to earn an interdisciplinary engineering degree that also prepares you for careers in teaching, product design, entrepreneurship, technical sales, pre-med, law or many others!

If one or all of these statements apply to your future goals, Engineering Plus may be the right engineering degree for you!
