Attention students! Because changes to the academic calendar have led to a later start to the spring semester, you now have a fantastic opportunity to progress in your education by taking online courses during the winter session.
Do you want to take a course that will move you ahead in the curriculum? Is there a course that you want to repeat to improve your grade? Or does a course just sound interesting to you? Below is a list of courses offered in the College of Engineering during the winter session. Please make sure to check prereqs for the courses and consult with your advisor prior to registering for a course.
