University of Colorado-Boulder
Colorado, United States
AUIS has partnered with the University of Colorado-Boulder to design and implement a pioneering General Engineering curriculum that corresponds to the most advanced thinking on undergraduate engineering education, as promoted by the decisive accrediting society ABET to whose standards the program is designed. It offers a flexibility that opens a multitude of career paths and employment opportunities as well as a solid foundation for specialized graduate work. The curriculum emphasizes strong grounding in engineering fundamentals, with the possibility of concentrations in Mechanical and Petroleum engineering, as well as courses in engineering communication and engineering economics. This program reflects an understanding of AUIS’s core curriculum, appropriately adapted, and thus allows for an organic integration of the engineering program into a liberal arts college. The partnership features semi-annual visits from UC-Boulder faculty to review and facilitate progress on program implementation.
