The Engineering and Applied Science Doctor of Philosophy program is an innovative multidisciplinary program designed to model modern research. Students choose a primary concentration from a host department within the College of Engineering, Design and Computing. The primary concentration is complemented by a secondary concentration in engineering or from any CU Denver school/college.
The coursework in the primary and secondary areas must consist of ten courses—students must take at least five courses in his/her primary area of concentration and at least three courses in a secondary area of concentration. Other courses may be recommended by the student’s advisor.
Research spanning two or more of the five college departments is strongly encouraged and is a major strength of the program.
