About the College of Engineering


Students are admitted directly from high school or another institution and can change majors at any time. There are no GPA cutoffs, quotas by department, and no "weeding out." Students study what they are interested in and passionate about.
Iowa Institute for Biomedical Imaging


The College has twenty research locations in six academic programs, four research centers, and interdisciplinary research efforts. Faculty, staff and students benefit from a variety of research experiences and backgrounds.
Research Highlights


The College is actively engaged in interdisciplinary research, much of which takes place in our research centers and institutes. Students and faculty know each other well and feel part of a unique engineering community.


We strive to ensure that students from groups traditionally underrepresented in engineering have the opportunity to realize their potential while also contributing their unique ideas, skills, talents, and strengths to the community.
