Engineering Outreach Program
The Engineering Outreach (EO) program began in 1975 to meet the educational needs of Idaho's just-developing high-tech industry. EO's first courses were delivered on videotape to regional corporations and educational centers.
Today, EO delivers courses online in engineering and various academic disciplines to students worldwide each semester. In-class sessions are recorded in high definition and encoded in a high-resolution MP4 format. Sessions are viewed online by students through a secure web portal. Engineering Outreach study options include master’s degrees, academic certificates, non-degree coursework for transfer credit, background study, and professional education. EO also delivers a variety of undergraduate courses; however, students cannot earn an entire undergraduate degree at a distance.
