Ways to Help
Check your email for the most up-to-date announcements from the college and BYU.
Building Access
Effective 4/1 per BYU's announcement , all College of Engineering buildings are closed.
  • Obtain ID card access entry to the buildings from your instructor, advisor, or supervisor if needed.
  • Campus buildings should only be used by those who do not have the resources they need (such as reliable internet access), not to provide a convenient place for student groups to congregate. Do not come to campus unless it is essential.
Lab & Facilities Access
Effective 3/25, all College of Engineering computing, design, fabrication, measurement, and research laboratories are closed to anyone without ID card access.
  • Students who require access to facilities will now also need building access after building closures issued 4/1 (see Building Access).
  • Work with your instructor, advisor, or supervisor to get ID card access to closed facilities.
Advisors in Student Services, in each department advisement office, and in Career Services are available to help via phone, email, or video conference.
College Offices
If you need help from the College of Engineering Dean’s Office, you can contact us in several ways:
BYU Counseling and Psychological Services team remains available to provide counseling to you regardless of where you are. Find information at .
Study Abroads
All of BYU's 2020 Spring and Summer term study abroad programs have been cancelled. Please reach out to the Weidman Center for more information.

We are grateful to many alumni and students who have reached out inquiring about ways they can help use their unique engineering knowledge and resources to help fight the COVID-19 pandemic.

One effort to help combat COVID-19 that is currently underway is the creation of 3D-printed protective masks for first responders. Visit the link below to find opportunities and resources to get you started.

If you do end up joining in any of these organized efforts, we’d love to see photos of your machinery, process, etc. to help showcase the effort of our talented students and alumni. Send those to or via our Facebook and Instagram pages (@byuengineering).
