BECOME AN ENGINEER ... AND SOMETHING MORE. Engineering students at Iowa are smart, interesting people good at working in teams to solve problems. They're also international travelers, Big Ten athletes, Hawkeye Marching Band members, leaders of student organizations, fraternity and sorority members, entrepreneurs, artists, musicians, hospital volunteers, student senators, dance marathoners, intramural competitors, researchers, and more.
DIRECT ADMISSION into ENGINEERING and into the MAJOR OF YOUR CHOICE: We admit students directly into the College of Engineering from high school or upon transfer from another institution. From that moment on, students can choose to study any engineering major and can change majors at any time. There are no GPA cutoffs or quotas by department, no "weeding out" of students. We want students to study what they are interested in and passionate about. Engineering@Iowa students take three semesters of courses in common which gives students time to settle on the right engineering major while still staying on track to graduate in four years.
