Many resources within the College of Engineering can help you succeed as a student and as an engineer. Don’t miss an opportunity to get ahead!
Scholarships and Financial Aid
We want to give you the extra edge you need to succeed! The College of Engineering awards scholarships to freshmen, continuing, and transfer students. Most engineering scholarships are partial awards ranging from $500.00 to $5,000.00 per year, and the average first-year scholarship ranges from $1,500.00 to $3,000.00.
Co-ops and Internships
The College of Engineering at the University of Kentucky strongly encourages students to gain experience in their field because the value such opportunities bring to a student’s professional and academic development is immeasurable. We accomplish this objective through the Cooperative Education Program (Co-op) and internships.
Many students enhance their academic careers by becoming involved in student project teams and organizations. These activities can provide leadership opportunities, hands-on engineering experience, and a chance to meet other engineering students.
Engineering/MBA Dual Degree
The Engineering/MBA Dual Degree program unites technology and business, awarding both the Bachelor of Engineering and Master of Business Administration (MBA) degrees. The Engineering/MBA Dual Degree program supplements your technical background in engineering or computer science with leadership, communication, problem-solving and team-building skills while increasing your knowledge in economics, finance, marketing, management, and much more.
Engineers, just like their employers, are operating worldwide. Most engineers who work for a global company will find themselves interacting across borders with colleagues from diverse backgrounds. To help students gain an international perspective early on, the College of Engineering has developed several international programs.
University Scholars Program
The University Scholars Program offers particularly gifted and highly motivated students the opportunity of integrating their undergraduate and graduate courses of study in a single continuous program culminating in both a baccalaureate and a master’s or doctoral degree.
