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.
A global leader in the area of design engineering and science, Kristin Wood, has joined the faculty of CU Denver’s College of Engineering, Design and Computing as Senior Associate Dean for Innovation and Engagement and Professor of Mechanical Engineering. Wood will lead the college’s ambitious efforts to transform engineering education by integrating design across the engineering curriculum – from students' first days to their final days at CU Denver – and driving the college’s strategic vision to innovate at the confluence of computing and design. He will also lead the college's strategy to impact the Denver urban corridor and Colorado through strategic partnerships with the public and private sector that span its education, research, and professional development platforms.
