UC Riverside Expands Online Engineering Degree Programs

UC Riverside

Through a partnership with Pearson, the University of California at Riverside's Bourns College of Engineering is growing its online engineering degree programs, adding specializations in Bioengineering, Electrical Engineering (Power Systems), Environmental Engineering Systems (Water), Materials at the Nanoscale, and Mechanical Engineering.

Pearson will provide a range of services, including marketing, enrollment management, student support and retention services, and helpdesk services, allowing the university to "extend its award-winning program to working adults and other non-traditional students that may not have been able to attend an on-ground program in the past," according to a press release.

"We are pleased to collaborate with Pearson to offer these online programs that enable employed engineers and scientists to sharpen their engineering management skills and advance their technical training," said Dean Reza Abbaschian of UCR's Bourns College of Engineering, in a statement. "We believe the degree program will benefit them, their employers and our industrial community."
