Jumpstart your engineering education: ES100X
How to enroll
Most Alaskan high school students can enroll in ES100X at discounted rates through the Alaska Advantage Program.
For any questions related to enrollment in the course, please contact Amy Bristor, Alaska Advantage Coordinator, via the questions portal on the web page.

For questions regarding the applicability of ES100X to CEM engineering programs or other programs:
For technical questions regarding the ES100X course content:
ES100X (Engineering Alaska) versus ES100L (Makerspace Alaska)
Please note, that ES100X (Engineering Alaska) is not the same as ES100L (Makerspace Alaska).
- 3-credit asynchronous online course
- 1-credit laboratory course currently only offered on the UAF Troth Yeddha’ campus.
Students intending to take the course from a remote location should not sign up for ES100L.
- A student need not be an engineering student to take ES100X or ES100L.
- ES100X and ES100L can both be taken for credit (some of our engineering programs require both). However, they do not need to be taken during the same semester, nor is one a prerequisite for the other. The prerequisite for both courses is placement into MATH 105 (or ALEKS score of 30).
- ES100X replaced ES101 in the CEM engineering curricula (Fall 2022). Some programs may not yet have updated their curriculum listings to reflect the change.
- ES100X is not required for all engineering programs in CEM. Programs that currently
require the courses are listed below:
Civil engineering Yes Yes Computer engineering Yes Yes Computer science, B.A.* No No Computer science, B.S.* No No Electrical engineering Yes Yes Geological engineering* No No Mechanical engineering Yes No Mining engineering* No No Petroleum engineering* No No
*The combination of ES100X and ES100L qualify as a 4-credit GER (General Education Requirement) for Natural Sciences. Since all UAF B.S. and B.A. degrees require 8-credits of Natural Science GER, the combination of ES100X and ES100L could be applied to help meet this criterion even for engineering (or non-engineering) programs that do not explicitly require those specific courses. Both ES100X and ES100L must be taken in order for either to qualify towards the Natural Science GER, but they need not be taken concurrently.
