Where engineering meets innovation and prepares students to be leaders and societal change makers.
At the CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing, we focus on providing our students with a comprehensive engineering education at the undergraduate, graduate and professional level. Faculty conduct research that spans our five disciplines of civil, electrical and mechanical engineering, bioengineering, and computer science and engineering. The college collaborates with industry from around the state; our laboratories and research opportunities give students the hands-on experience they need to excel in the professional world.
The Department of Bioengineering is the first of its kind in Colorado. Students have opportunities to learn from clinicians and engineers and to perform research or medical device design in world-class hospitals and clinical research labs both at CU Denver and the CU Anschutz Medical Campus.
The Department of Civil Engineering provides students with high-quality programs in civil engineering education. We offer several degrees supported by our faculty and staff and enriched with information gained from extensive laboratory and research work.
The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is committed to providing outstanding education and research training to our students for productive careers in industry, academia, and government in the Denver metropolitan area, state and beyond.
The Department of Electrical Engineering strives to continually update their programs to qualify graduates for technical positions in the Denver metropolitan area and beyond, while also assuring our graduates of success in their chosen profession.
Mechanical engineering offers interesting and challenging career opportunities in research, design, development, manufacturing, testing and marketing for either private industry or government. As a mechanical engineer, you may work on products such as engines, oil field drilling rigs, missiles, space satellites, earth moving equipment, container manufacturing machines and medical equipment.
In March 2019, Keith Neeves joined the Department of Bioengineering as professor and director of new initiatives, bringing with him a reputable lab, an extensive research portfolio and unprecedented enthusiasm. When Neeves decided to join faculty at CU Denver, both in bioengineering and in pediatrics at the CU School of Medicine, he was inspired by the breadth of opportunities: to translate technologies to clinical use, to train students at the interface of engineering and medicine and to grow what he sees at Colorado’s preeminent bioengineering program. Thus far, he is embracing these opportunities to the fullest. Neeves also is playing a key role in the development of a new collegewide biomedical technology program set to launch in fall 2020. The program will be located at the CU Anschutz Medical Campus in the new Bioscience 3 building, and is designed to train students across all engineering disciplines for current and future employment needs in the bioscience sector.
