Honors Program

You owe it to yourself to complement your engineering coursework with the opportunities offered by Iowa's honors programs. As an honors student, you can:

  • Be recognized for your broader achievements beyond the classroom including research, study abroad, co-ops and internships, leadership in student organizations and other community engagement experiences
  • Enroll in honors courses and seminars designed for high capability students that bring close contact with faculty through smaller classes and research projects
  • Conduct independent research under the supervision of a faculty member and build relationships with faculty for future recommendations
  • Meet and interact with other honors students around the University at honors events and workshops

Students who fulfill the requirements of University Honors and/or Engineering Honors are recognized at commencement. Achievement of University Honors and/or Engineering Honors is noted on the transcript and diploma.
