About the College

For more than 100 years, the College of Engineering at the University of Idaho has been providing exceptional learning and research opportunities for students from Idaho and around the world.

At Idaho, we have one of the leading engineering programs in the Northwest. The quality education our students receive here shows in a number of different ways, including our students' scores on the national Fundamentals of Engineering exam. For spring 2008, the average score for our students was 94 percent, and the national average was 78 percent.

We also have world-class research facilities and professors who are working on a wide range of cutting edge research.

There are six departments in the College of Engineering:
Biological and Agricultural Engineering
Chemical and Materials Engineering 
Civil Engineering
Computer Science
Electrical and Computer Engineering
Mechanical Engineering

An engineering undergraduate degree at Idaho involves learning the fundamentals of engineering in your first two years. During your junior and senior years, you will work with hands-on learning and research that gives you experience in engineering design, including a senior capstone design project, where you will pair with an industry partner to solve problems and create solutions.

We are dedicated to our students' success, and we know that one-on-one interaction with faculty is important. At the College of Engineering, the average student to faculty ratio for fall 2008 was 15 to 1. Our faculty are also advisers of our student organizations and groups, as well as being available for office hours and individual appointments. For fall 2008 there were 1,200 undergraduate students, 280 master's degree students and 65 doctoral degree students at the College of Engineering.
