Covid 19

COE Updates: COVID-19

This site is for the Nebraska Engineering community -- especially students, faculty and staff -- and will provide information and updates specifically addressed by the college. We are continuing to monitor the developments regarding COVID-19 and its implications for our operations.  I encourage everybody to use their best judgment about remote work arrangements and work interactions and to continue to use common sense best practices around hand and facial hygiene and social distancing. We can expect further policy guidance from the University over the course of this week.  For the moment, we will continue to remain open for the majority of our operations.


If you are a prospective student who has been admitted to the college or had intended to visit, please contact our recruitment team for more information.


  • 3-26-20: Beginning Monday, March 30, the NE Ride shuttle will no longer be in service until further notice. This decision has been made in response to low ridership due to COVID-19 and the move to remote teaching, learning and working for students, faculty and staff. 
  • 3-19-20: The 2020 Senior Design Showcase - scheduled for May 1, 2020 - has been cancelled in response to university and college guidelines, and the evolving situation regarding COVID-19.
