College of Engineering Academic Policies

Students must meet University, College and Departmental requirements for graduation. This website outlines the College of Engineering’s academic policies as well as the processes to follow when students want/need to request an exception to these policies. Examples of college-wide policies include Academic Probation, Foreign Language Requirement, and the Basic Program.

Engineering Career Services

Engineering Career Services (ECS) helps ISU engineering students and alumni plan, prepare for, and launch successful careers. They also help employers connect with ISU’s great engineering talent. ECS offers services such as career fairs, individualized counseling, and skill-building workshops. Any student’s search for full-time and/or experiential (i.e., internship or co-op) employment opportunities begins here.

Engineering Honors Program

The Engineering Honors Program (EHP) is a part of Iowa State’s University Honors Program (UHP), both of which are meant to add structured breadth, depth, and personal and professional development to students’ Iowa State experience. Engineering Honors students design highly-individualized programs of study to meet individual needs, interests, and aptitudes

Engineering International Programs

Engineering International Programs (EIP) provides once-in-a-lifetime opportunities for students to study, work, or research in an international context. EIP’s website includes detailed information on pre-approved programs for engineering students to continue their coursework abroad. Offered programs vary greatly in length (i.e., from 1-2 weeks to an entire semester), cost, and destination.

Engineering-LAS Online Learning (ELO)

Engineering-LAS Online Learning (ELO) offers many ISU engineering courses online in order to give students the greatest possible flexibility in their coursework. View a list of which online courses are offered each semester on their website.

Professional Engineer (P.E.) Licensure

In the United States, engineers are licensed at the state level by professional licensing boards. Engineering boards confer the Professional Engineer (P.E.) license when licensure candidates meet a combination of requirements in education, experience, and exams. The NCEES website details this process, most notably the Fundamentals of Engineering (F.E.) exam that interested undergraduates usually take soon after completing their engineering degree.
