Abstract

Iron Range Engineering is an award-winning, project-based, upper-division engineering program. Its educational model has been propagated to two different implementations that meet different regional and student needs. There is evidence of student success as the model moves from start-up mode to sustainable programs in different settings. A key motivator for the model and its program is increasing access to engineering education by supporting students who transfer from two-year colleges, broadening the participation of underrepresented and first-generation (first in their families to attend college) students in engineering.
