Providing the highest-quality academic experience with a focus on your success and well-being.
The CU Denver College of Engineering, Design and Computing (CEDC) is committed to supporting students on and off-campus. Since spring, we have been working on our CEDC Next Normal plan in close collaboration with the CU Denver Safe Return and CU Anschutz Return to Campus plans. While our fall 2020 teaching, learning, research, and student services will take place in myriad modes and spaces, our actions are focused on your success, well-being, and providing you the highest-quality academic experience possible. In addition to course delivery, you can count on our student services, e.g., advising and technology support, to proceed uninterrupted throughout the summer and fall with a mix of digital and physical support.
This site is intended to provide instructions and resources to assist students with the return to learning for fall 2020. It will be updated regularly as information becomes available and/or changes.

Comprehensive IT student support for all engineering students
Instruction for fall 2020 will occur in one of four formats, outlined below. While these categories briefly describe the workings of each delivery mode, all have considerable flexibility, and the actual workings of each course you take will depend on how the instructor has designed it. Furthermore, we have designed each offering so that, if needed, we can transition quickly to fully remote learning. Regardless of the delivery format, each course will be taught in a high-quality manner, by a highly qualified faculty member committed to your success.
On July 7, all students were sent an email instructing them to log in and check their fall course schedule, as the course format had been updated. We've also included lists of engineering courses in the sections below. Don't see the class you're looking for? Contact your department program manager.
On-campus courses are scheduled primarily on campus/in person with pre-scheduled meeting patterns, even if there are other online/digital components. These mainly include our lab and design courses.
Hybrid courses include a mix of pre-scheduled, live meeting patterns on campus and ﬂexible schedule learning in an online setting. These mainly include lab, design, and first-year engineering courses.
Remote courses have pre-scheduled, live meeting patterns delivered through Zoom and may include other online components. Exams for remote offerings potentially may be scheduled on campus; details will be provided by the instructor at the beginning of the semester.
