The Engineering and Applied Science Doctor of Philosophy program consists of studies in engineering and engineering-related disciplines. It is a multidisciplinary program in keeping with the interdisciplinary nature of modern research. The degree is conferred by the College of Engineering and Applied Science. However, applicants to the degree program apply to and enter the program through one of four departments, called the host department, of the College. The applicant chooses his/her host department based on his/her intended primary concentration of study. The four departments of the College that serve as host departments are Civil Engineering (CE), Computer Science and Engineering (CSE), Electrical Engineering (EE), and Mechanical Engineering (ME). Each host department offers several concentrations. The secondary concentration can be chosen from any remaining department of the College, including Bioengineering (BIOE). The secondary concentration may also be chosen from another College/School at CU Denver. The coursework in the primary and secondary areas must consist of ten courses (30 units). In addition to other courses, a student 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 that spans across two or more of the five College departments is strongly encouraged and is a major strength of the program.
