Along Cherry Creek, there are 22 foot bridges, many of which were damaged by high waters from last week’s flood. CU Denver engineering students are helping the city inspect the bridges for any structural damage, by doing hands-on exams. “We don’t always get a chance to get out of the classroom,” said Eric Petrie, a junior. “This allows us to get real experience working with professionals and it looks good on our resumes when it comes time to looking for a job.”
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.
