Meet the Dean

As dean, I appreciate your visit to this website and your interest in our college. I think you will find excellent programs within our five Departments, which are constantly being updated and modernized by our dedicated group of faculty. As an example, energy conservation, sustainability, and green engineering are becoming more prevalent in many engineering educational programs. We are well ahead of the curve here at CU Denver with our Center for Sustainable Urban Infrastructure and our NSF-funded IGERT graduate training program. We have just launched our new Department of Bioengineering, which will provide a model of connecting education and research between our downtown campus and the Anschutz Medical Campus.

Students preparing for the 21st century job market require a multidisciplinary skill set. We are providing our students with numerous and meaningful design experiences incorporating analysis, modeling, experiment, and research. Our faculty is actively making innovation, creativity, and leadership cornerstones of our educational programs.

We have strong research and educational programs in biophotonics, biomedical imaging and devices, applied mechanics, sports equipment, energy and power systems, high-performance computing, software engineering, sustainability and green engineering, to name a few. These programs support the CU Denver mission: to provide a diverse teaching and learning community that creates, discovers, and applies knowledge to improve the health and well-being of Colorado and the world.

Our college is conveniently located in downtown Denver, an environment conducive to higher education with its many available resources. We serve both traditional students and the working professional with daytime and evening classes.

If you are interested in learning more about the college of engineering, please feel free to contact us.
