IDEA introduces students to engineering, innovation and entrepreneurship. In IDEA, students will:

  • Explore engineering disciplines
  • Practice engineering through real world projects
  • Engage in teamwork and collaboration
  • Understand how math and science apply to engineering
  • Understand how creativity fits into engineering

How to register: EGT 140, 3 credits, Introduction to Design and Engineering Applications is offered each fall and spring semester. Pre-requisites: MAT 121. IDEA will transfer to Colorado School of Mines for EPICS i and to CU-Boulder Engineering for GEEN 1400 Engineering Projects.

IDEA students have access to the IDEA Lab to collaborate, prototype their design, engage with mentors and make their videos.
