CU Denver alumus and former Denver Mayor Guillermo (Bill) Vidal was on campus Monday to meet with Chancellor Dorothy Horrell and visit his alma mater. He also found time to tour the concrete lab and visit with civil engineering professor NY Chang and some of his graduate students.
Vidal graduated from CU Denver in 1973 with a degree in civil engineering. His visit was part of a collaboration between CU Denver and CU Boulder, the end result of which will be a documentary on his life.
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.
