Cumulative Course Portfolio
The Cumulative Course Portfolio (CCP) is designed to help students gain a better picture of the variety of careers available in each engineering discipline, and to help align with WVU's Project 168. Collegiate Engagement represents 5% of the final grade in all Fundamentals of Engineering courses. No one can be exempt from the Collegiate Engagement requirement.
Completing the CCP Requirement
Throughout the semester, students will build an electronic portfolio of their engineering course work and attend campus events related to important engineering skills. Additionally, students must maintain an Excel spreadsheet based on the course syllabus that tracks their performance in class. Towards the conclusion of the semester, students will write a reflection essay on their cumulative experiences in and out of the classroom, and at the end of the semester submit their final electronic portfolio through their MIX account’s Google Drive.
While the Fundamentals of Engineering Program will announce Department Visitations and other out-of-class events, it is recommended that students actively seek out engineering programs and events on their own.
To receive credit for an event, students must bring an out-of-class event form with them to the event, fill out the form, and submit it to their instructor on the assigned due date.
Academic Enrichment is open to all Fundamentals of Engineering students, but are required for those students taking ENGR 100, 101, 102, or 191.
**Study Lab Hours begin August 19th**

Academic Enrichment Credit
Attendance is tracked for Academic Enrichment (and the accepted substitutes) by the Fundamentals of Engineering Office. You can check your Academic Enrichment Attendance anytime online. It is the responsibility of the student to periodically check the attendance record to ensure accuracy.
Academic Enrichment Exemptions
Students may be exempt from the required Academic Enrichment if they complete the Academic Enrichment Exemption Form via Exams before the end of the 10th week of classes. If the form is completed and approved, the student will receive a confirmation via email and will be exempt from the Academic Enrichment requirement for Weeks 9-16 of the current term.
It is the responsibility of the student to check the Academic Enrichment Attendance to make sure these exemptions are recorded.
