COE Honors Program

In the College of Engineering, students have the opportunity to conduct original research in collaboration with a faculty mentor.

Students also have the opportunity to enroll in an honors section of their capstone courses (if available in their major). The specific options and requirements for College Honors vary depending on the student's engineering major.

Students who successfully complete the requirements for College Honors in their major will be graduated with the designation: "Honors in [Specific Engineering Major]" on their transcripts.

Students in the University Honors Program who meet their department's qualifications are strongly encouraged to apply. However, prior membership in the University Honors Program is not an eligibility requirement for participation in the College of Engineering Honors program

All students who meet their major's eligibility requirements are strongly encouraged to apply and participate in College Honors.
