A student looks into a microscope

It’s bigger than a major. It’s more than an engineering degree.

It’s late-night conversations about changing the world. It’s the set of experiences that turns a job into a lifetime of difference‑making.

New Rams, did you get your Principles of Community postcard project?

These paper globes were just sent out to our incoming class!

Each globe showcases our Principles of Community that support the Colorado State University mission and vision of access, research, teaching, service and engagement.

Here in the Walter Scott, Jr. College of Engineering, we believe that creativity and innovation can only be fostered in environments where diversity, equity, and inclusion exist. Therefore, each member of the CSU community has a responsibility to uphold these principles when engaging with one another and acting on behalf of the University.

Need a little help?

We made the short video below to help you engineer your masterpiece!
