Can I do Honors as an engineering student?

Yes! MANY engineering students are accepted into the Honors Program at Iowa.  Students are eligible for the University-wide honors program as long as they maintain a UI GPA of 3.33 or higher.  It is up to each student how they choose to complement their engineering coursework with the opportunities offered by the Honors Program; there are a wide array of options for students – educational, social, experiential, and more!  You are able to select and participate in those options which reflect your interests, strengths, and goals.  Learn more about the Honors Program and specific information about Honors within the College of Engineering. Engineering students can graduate with a Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSE) degree with honors by completing the Engineering Honors Seminar and an approved honors/research project.

We also provide opportunities to participate in the Grand Challenges Scholars Program, a combined curricular and extra-curricular program designed to prepare students to solve the grand challenges facing society in this century.
