Good resources to find online Universities?
I'm interested in checking out different universities with online engineering programs. But there's a lot of junk, scam websites when you start googling the subject. Too many disguised as. I'm looking for real schools, with normal accreditations. Not Phoenix or something else sketchy.

Are there any reputable sources about the different schools? Good rankings lists, or other websites with good information?

Arizona State has a significant number of their degrees online, not sure if engineering is one of them.

It is. It's tuition was about twice what I saw with North Dakota. I think it was even more expensive than Georgia Tech's online grad program. But it may be a legit school. I don't know much of anything. A ton had changed since in the dozen years since I've was in school, and online programs were just beginning.

Engineering doesn't translate well to online. If you are just wanting to learn, MIT gives their courses away for free. Where do you live? The state of AL has a great university system. You can attend for a very reasonable cost.

re: Good resources to find online Universities?
There aren't many choices for online engineering programs. I personally looked for the same thing, but there are many out there.

1. Arizona St. - engineering management (accredited by ABET)

2. University of North Dakota - mechanical, civil, electrical, etc. This one was very expensive and requires like 2 weeks of on campus labs each summer (accredited by ABET)

I think University of Alabama may have one but there are a few on campus requirements before you can take the online version completely.

These are the only ones that I was able to find when I was actively looking, but if you happen to find others keep this thread updated.

I found North Dakota's to be way more expensive for out of state students. The rep told me that it would cost well over $100,000 for the entire program.

Seems like one of the Kentucky schools had a lot of online stuff.

Im not sure how any ABET credited program is completely online.

I did no shite 2-3 labs per semester. Those labs were 2-3 hours a piece that only counted as 1 semester hour.

You learn how to be an engineer in those labs.

Comp Sci is a different story. You can make an online classroom for most of the subjects taught.

I had one junior design class, two senior design classes, and also a few labs. Our program requires us to do group work and presentations in a bunch of classes too. All of that was mandatory for ABET accreditation IIRC

re: Good resources to find online Universities?
I think my cousin did something similar with UAB and nursing as the Bama program.

I already have 16 years in the industry as an structural inspector, and on a lot of large scale infrastructure projects. So I don't think I'll be changing to anything computer. Though construction management might be a more feasible option than civil.

That's a shitload. Though I could possibly get my company to pay for it. I'm still seeing what kind of options are out there.

Bama by distance... scroll down to Engineering. I looked at this a while back and I think you do the majority online with a couple of labs that have to be done at one of the Bama satellite campuses.

Coursework is completed primarily online with the exception of three lab courses that require an occasional face-to-face component. Students can complete these labs during the weekend across the state of Alabama in Dothan, Gadsden or Tuscaloosa.

University of Idaho had one of the first distance engineering programs, ABET accredited. There are a lot of other major schools that offer B.S. online, you just have to dig around.

Speak to some counselors at local community colleges. They can have a good working knowledge of various online programs for schools in your area and state (preferred for tuition affordability).

They may know or can research for you schools that have online or hybrid courses that would work for you.

Good luck!

re: Good resources to find online Universities?
Arizona state has an online electrical engineering program but I found it was waaaay more difficult and switched to UNO so I could actually go to class. I think engineering is one of those degrees that is better off in person.

Also if you're hell bent on online, check out South Dakota state as well.
