Dear Students in the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering:

We hope that you are staying healthy and taking much-deserved time away this summer to re-energize and get in a rhythm for this new world we’re living in together. We miss seeing you. And, despite the challenges that we will continue to face as a community, we are committed to providing the highest quality education this fall and beyond to prepare you for your future engineering and scientist careers. 

To that end, we have laid out below what you might expect as we get closer to the start of the school year. All faculty and staff are planning for multiple scenarios this fall which, depending on the class size and learning objectives, will consist of face-to-face instruction, remote course delivery, or hybrid delivery (mix of face-to-face and remote). More information about these delivery modes is available at

While these guidelines have already been communicated by President McConnell, we want to explain what that might look like for you here in the WSCOE.

First and foremost is health – for you, your instructors and the staff that support you. We can’t stress enough that when we do return to campus for classes starting August 24, we must all follow strict health protocols that are necessary for everyone and will also prevent additional restrictions and closures. We also ask for your patience as we work through all the necessary details.

All of us at the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering are here to support your success. We look forward to seeing all of you this fall!

Be well.

Updates and the latest information

As the pandemic and the necessary responses at the local, state and national levels continue to evolve, the following websites will be updated with the latest information:


Our goal, based on strict health guidelines, is to maximize the opportunity for in-person instruction while simultaneously allowing for remote learning where necessary.

The university has conducted a detailed inventory of every classroom, laboratory and learning environment here on campus to determine the maximum capacity to maintain safe social distancing requirements. For some courses, it may be possible for 100% of the instruction to occur in-person under these conditions. For other courses, it may be necessary to attend some fraction of classes in-person, and some fraction remotely.  In some cases, a course might be delivered completely online.

While things might look a little bit different than in previous years, we are committed to delivering the highest quality educational experience by investing in remote learning technology as well as additional instructors, graduate teaching assistants and undergraduate learning assistants. Given the complexity in class scheduling, final decisions on the delivery mode for each course will be made later this summer.

As per university guidelines, all lecture courses with more than 99 students have been moved online.  And, the university has expanded the weekly class schedule to enable additional afternoon and evening classes between 4 and 8 p.m. on weekdays, and with the option for classes on Saturdays.

Individual departments within the college are now busy planning the instructional delivery approaches depending on the classrooms and resources available to them within public health guidelines. Given the differences in enrollment and educational program requirements (e.g., labs, lectures, design projects), there may be slight variations in remote vs. in-person course delivery between departments in the college. Your department will be in touch with you soon with further information as it pertains to your program.  

The university is providing significant training for instructors this summer to ensure the best possible online course delivery. Additionally, most large classrooms in the college and across campus are being fitted with new technology for efficient lecture capture, remote access, and to record the content for asynchronous viewing.   Based on feedback from students and faculty from this spring, we will strive whenever possible to deliver synchronous remote instruction, providing opportunity for real-time interaction with a faculty member, while also providing opportunity for students to access recorded lectures/laboratory material asynchronously as well.

Classes that are delivered in-person or hybrid will appear in RAMweb with a day, time, and classroom. As the Office of the Registrar manages the process of finding the appropriate space for the course, there may be changes to the room over the summer. You will receive more information about your individual classes and expectations for in-person/hybrid participation near the beginning of the semester. Note that some of the courses that currently say in-person may actually be online or hybrid. The Office of the Registrar is clarifying all instructional formats by early August.

Please also continue to monitor for the latest information from the university on classes this fall.

Based on health considerations, the last two weeks of classes (November 30-December 11) and finals week (December 14-18) will be delivered remotely. Plans are moving ahead to celebrate graduation with returning students and the students whose ceremony was delayed in May, but the timeline is subject to public health guidance.

Housing and Dining

University housing is scheduled to be open for the fall semester and will remain open during and after Fall Break for students who need to remain or return to campus. There are new guidelines for dining that respects physical distancing. Please go to for detailed information.

  • Impact on GPA for students on academic probation.
  • Impact on graduate/professional school applications.
  • Scholarship implications if a minimum of graded coursework is required.

RAM Orientation

RAM Orientation has gone virtual this summer, and the majority of our incoming first-year and transfer students have successfully registered.  For more information, please visit this website:
