Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Each department in the College of Engineering requires design projects throughout the curriculum, with a major design sequence in the senior year. Each senior project requires a complete design experience, from problem statement to final prototype and documentation. Students work in teams, and written and oral reports are required. Many projects, but not all, are sponsored by industry for the cost of components and materials. In 2013, our senior capstone design program was recognized by the National Academy of Engineering as one of the best in the nation in it's report, "Infusing Real-World Experiences into Engineering Education". It was highlighted it as one of seven top national capstone programs alongside Harvey Mudd College and Michigan Technical University.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

For more than 100 years, the College of Engineering has been providing exceptional learning and research opportunities for students from Idaho and around the world. We have one of the leading engineering programs in the Northwest. A large number of firms and agencies from throughout the country send interviewers to the University of Idaho campus each year seeking to hire UIdaho engineering students. We have world class research facilities and professors who are working on a wide range of cutting edge research. The College of Engineering is the home of a NIATT (National Institute for Applied Transportation Technology) Center, funded by the Federal Department of Transportation, Idaho Space Grant Consortium and the Center for Secure and Dependable Systems. The size of the college is near the median of engineering colleges in the country. It is not so large that the importance of the student as an individual is lost but is large enough to support the faculty and facilities needed for top-quality education. The University of Idaho has established a reputation for excellent scores on the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination, on which students often produce a pass rate of 100 percent. In 2013, the National Academy of Engineering recognized the UI College of Engineering senior capstone design program as one of the best in the nation, highlighting it as one of seven top capstones alongside Harvey Mudd College and Michigan Technical University in it's report, "Infusing Real-World Experiences into Engineering Education."

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Information about the undergraduate admission process and application forms are available from the Office of Admissions or online at www.uidaho.edu/admissions. Applicants to the university must present satisfactory evidence of good character.

First-year applicants graduating from high school prior to 1995 must meet the requirements in effect for their graduation year. A degree-seeking applicant applying directly from high school or with fewer than 14 semester credits of transfer credit must meet the criteria listed in the catalog.

Applicants who have been enrolled in other colleges or universities accredited by one of the regional accrediting agencies, such as the Northwest Commission of Colleges and Universities, and who have satisfactorily accumulated 14 or more transferable credits after high school graduation may be admitted with advance standing as transfer students.

Additional information is available in the catalog.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

A statement of undergraduate and graduate admission requirements is included in the admissions portion of the UI catalog. A student may be admitted with less than the requirements listed, but the deficiency must be made up before he or she can progress very far in a college of engineering course of study.

Students who contemplate entering the College of Engineering with advanced standing from other institutions should complete as many of the freshman and sophomore requirements listed in the curricula as possible. Calculus, chemistry and physics and the various introductory engineering courses are prerequisites to many advanced courses, and their omission may delay graduation.

Students from out-of-state institutions who wish to transfer to a degree program offered by the College of Engineering are invited to apply. Those who's cumulative GPA is below 2.8 for all previous college-level courses, including any courses taken at UI, may be admitted on approval of the College of Engineering Admissions Committee

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) with a minimum score of 525 on the paper test or 70 in the internet based test. Subtitutions/alternate proofs of English competency are listed in the catalog and on the website at www.uidaho.edu/admissions

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as for resident students

Residency Requirements

A student must earn a minimum of 30 upper-division credits in UI courses. No credits awarded for alternative credit opportunities (see regulation I) or independent study can be counted among these 30 UI credits. Study abroad and student exchange credits may be counted toward this requirement with prior approval by the student's academic department and dean.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Applicants who have been enrolled in other colleges or universities accredited by one of the regional accrediting agencies, such as the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities, and who have satisfactorily accumulated 14 or more transferable credits after high school graduation may be admitted with advance standing as transfer students.
In addition to a completed undergraduate admission application form, transfer applicants must submit the following credentials to the Undergraduate Admissions Office:
1. Official transcripts from each college or university previously attended. To be considered official transcripts must be mailed directly to the University of Idaho Undergraduate Admissions Office by the issuing institution. Transcripts received become the property of the university and cannot be returned, copied or forwarded.
2. Applicants with fewer than 14 semester hours of transfer credit since high school graduation must meet both first-year and transfer admission requirements, including submission of the required test scores.
3. Students participating in running start, dual credit or accelerated learning programs who are concurrently enrolled in college credit courses while still attending high school need to meet first-year requirements for admission and submit all the appropriate high school documentation regardless of the number of transferable credits completed.
Transfer students are selected from those applicants who present a cumulative grade-point average of at least 2.00 (C) for all college-level study attempted in all accredited colleges attended, exclusive of courses for which credits are not allowed. Students transferring from out-of-state schools into the College of Engineering must have a cumulative grade-point average of at least 2.80. Admission of transfer students to the landscape architecture program will be based on GPA (typically limited to 2.5 or above), test scores (ACT/SAT), and a portfolio with a letter of intent submitted to the department.
Students admitted to the University of Idaho from other collegiate educational institutions must have complied with the academic regulations for continuance in the institution(s) that they have attended in addition to the academic regulations that are applied to students enrolled in this institution.
An applicant with previous college work who does not qualify for regular admission may also seek provisional acceptance by applying to the Admissions Committee for consideration.

Admissions Information

Graduate Admission to the College of Engineering

To be considered for graduate admissions students must have a bachelor’s degree from a college or university accredited by a regional accrediting association. If the degree is from a recognized but not regionally accredited institution, the application will be reviewed by the department and by the College of Graduate Studies.
Applicants must have a minimum overall Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.00 on a 4.00 grade scale equivalent to U.S. bachelor’s degree. If your GPA meets the minimum admission requirements, the department of major will determine if your overall academic record and test scores meet department requirements.
Note: If you do not meet the minimum 3.00 GPA, your application can be considered for admission if you:
• have an undergraduate GPA of 3.0 or higher for your last 60 semester credits or 90 quarter credits
or
• have worked in the program specific profession for 5+ years
• have a letter of support from a faculty member in the department
• write a detailed statement/essay describing your professional experience and potential to succeed academically

Graduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Admission to an engineering department requires admission to the College of Graduate Studies and approval of the department chair.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

International applicants are expected to have qualifications equivalent to those required of other graduate students.

Credentials. Official transcripts and/or certified copies of the certificate, diploma, or government examination report received on completion of any college or university course work must be delivered directly to the Graduate Admissions Office in a sealed envelope. The credentials must be translated into English if written in a foreign language.

English Language Proficiency. UI requires all applicants whose primary language is not English to demonstrate proficiency in the English language. UI bases its minimum English language proficiency requirements of the TOEFL and requires a minimum score of 550/79 or its equivalent. See catalog for more details.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as resident students

Residency Requirements

Graduate students are subject to the same residency requirements as undergraduates.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer students are subject to the same UI admissions requirements as non-transfer students and are subject to all College of Graduate Studies rules and regulations.

The combined total of transfer credits, correspondence credits, non-degree credits, credits moved from an undergraduate transcript that were not used toward an undergraduate degree and approved credits more than eight years old at the time the degree is awarded shall not exceed 12 credits for master's programs requiring 36 credits or less, and shall not exceed one third of the total credits in programs requiring more than 36.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
