This week, Assistive Technology Partners is moving onto the Auraria Campus from their 18th Ave. location. The new space includes about 2500 sq feet of office space in the Administration Building and almost 3000 sq ft in the 5th Street Hub. The new space will serve as a bioengineering presence on the Auraria Campus; host the Assistive Technology clinic; and provide research and engineering space for ATP students and our grants.
The Colorado Construction Industry, which has supported the ATP program for over a decade, funded close to $250,000 in Hub renovations and then came together across the industry to donate more than $100,000 in in-kind services and materials. They’ve also funded an endowed professorship and have also started an endowment to support the overall program within bioengineering and are starting a scholarship fund for students this year. To date, they’ve raised almost $2 million.
The program would like to thank Dean Marc Ingber and Bioengineering Chair Robin Shandas for their support in this transition.
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.
