Our plus option makes it possible for engineering students to earn a certificate in Business Bridge to Career or to complete the Harvard Business School’s Credential of Readiness through its collaboration with the Boise State College of Innovation and Design.

Engineering PLUS Pre-Medical Preparation


Did you know that engineering offers excellent preparation for careers in medicine? If you are interested in a graduate degree in the bio-mechanical field, becoming a Physician’s Assistant, working in orthopedics, or becoming a medical doctor, your Engineering PLUS degree is an excellent springboard. The recommended pre-requites for medical school admission and MCAT preparation mesh well with the Engineering Plus degree and prepare you for multiple medical pathways after its completion.

Engineering PLUS Psychology


Imagine being part of the engineering design team that helped design a tactile emoticon embedded into the Braille system for people who cannot see or working with AI researchers to teach a computer how to interpret human emotions. These developments are happening NOW and people with a background in Engineering PLUS behavioral sciences such as psychology are at the center of these teams. Read more about how you can add your PLUS in these quickly developing fields for Engineering PLUS Psychology.

Engineering PLUS User Experience Research

Innovation + human experience is what this field is all about.  Use your engineering foundation PLUS courses in Design Ethnography, Engineering Design, Psychology, and others to position yourself in this growing creative field.  UX designers traditionally worked in human-computer interaction, but this field has expanded into almost every industry.  Learn more about UX and, if it sounds like something you’d like to know more about, let’s talk!
