Computer engineering school applications for online enrollment have been opening up to the public for the first time in years, and the new program is designed to make it easier for students to find an institution with the best fit.
The Electronic Engineering Association (EEA), which represents a variety of computer engineering majors, has announced a partnership with Udacity, a free online video production platform, to allow students to apply to computer engineering school and get enrolled in one of Udacity’s online courses.
The new online enrollment program is meant to provide more access to college and career paths, said EEA President David R. Smith in a statement.
“There are currently over 3 million students in computer engineering across the United States who want to attend a college or university,” Smith said.
“But the traditional method of getting a college degree has been severely limited in recent years.
Many students struggle to find a college with the right mix of requirements, curricular choices and quality of teaching.
With the advent of online enrollment, we hope to provide even more options to students across the country.”
For students who want an online education, Udacity has set up a site to help them find an online college that’s right for them.
Udacity students can sign up to be part of the new enrollment program for free, and it will provide a link to a survey, which will ask them to fill out a survey that will then be analyzed by Udacity researchers and released to the online community.
Udacity has already made available an online survey that it says will help students answer questions about their academic, extracurricular, and life goals.
The survey will be open for a period of 30 days, and students will be able to view their responses through August 31.
Udosity will also publish an interactive version of the survey that can be used by students, parents, and other community members.
In a statement, Smith said that the new enrollments were designed to “give students the best chance to be admitted to a computer engineering program at the right institution, and to provide the best opportunity to learn about what is possible.”
“We hope the new online enrollments will open up more opportunities for students across all types of engineering fields to get a real shot at becoming a computer engineer,” Smith added.
The new enrollment option is one of several efforts Udacity is making to help students learn more about the opportunities they have for a better future.
In May, the company launched an online course called How to Create a Business that will help new engineers get started in their careers.
In April, the tech giant launched a website that will allow students in their first year of college to create their own courses that they can use in their jobs.
In June, Udacious announced a new initiative called Udacity Business to help aspiring entrepreneurs learn more and take action on the business side of their careers, starting with how to set up their first website.
The website will allow people to create courses and tutorials for them to use in real-time in the company’s marketplace, Udousas business website, Udosity says.
