Engineering students are able to work towards graduating with honors in two ways that are noted and recognized separately upon graduation. 

University Honors

The University Honors Program, also referred to as “Honors at Iowa,” is a membership-based program open to students with a strong academic record and commitment to membership in the Honors community. You can graduate with University Honors by completing honors-designated coursework and experiential learning opportunities.  A great way to satisfy the experiential learning requirement is to complete an honors thesis project through Honors in the Major. To learn more about eligibility and graduation requirements, visit University Honors.

Engineering students have the option of pursuing the traditional University Honors program, or fulfill the requirements using Engineering Alternative Curricular requirements

Honors in Engineering

In addition the University Honors Program, the College of Engineering offers an honors graduation designation specifically for undergraduate engineering students. Honors in the Major can be earned by completing additional requirements within your major.
