Students entering the College of Engineering at UW-Madison are eligible to apply for the Engineering Honors in Liberal Arts (EHLA) program.

High-ability students who enter the College of Engineering as first-year students with particularly broad educational goals and exceptional academic skills may be interested in the EHLA program (Engineering Honors in Liberal Arts).  It is a clone of the honors program in the College of Letters and Science, and as such gives selected students both access and motivation to take honors-level classes to fulfill basic engineering degree requirements.  Note that the College of Engineering does not offer honors classes, except for a few honors independent studies courses. 

EHLA designation will be awarded to those admitted to the EHLA program who meet the following requirements at graduation:
  • Satisfaction of requirements for one of the undergraduate engineering degrees
  • A cumulative grade-point average of at least 3.3 in honors classes
  • Completion of at least 24 credits in honors courses with grades of B or better
  • Completion of at least 6 credits in honors courses in the humanities, 6 credits in social sciences, and 6 credits in natural sciences
  • Completion of at least 15 honors credits in courses with the timetable designation "H" or "!" (special honors sections). The other credits may have % timetable designation or be taken for honors by special arrangement
The EHLA distinction is conferred at the point of graduation, and takes the form of a transcript notation. When students complete EHLA requirements (which could be as early as the second year), they are encouraged to note on their resume "All requirements for EHLA completed."
