John Tolva, urban technology expert and visionary of the smart cities movement, joined CU Denver’s College of Engineering, Design and Computing as a Scholar in Residence to lead research that engages local governments, the private sector, faculty and students in finding solutions for contemporary urban challenges.
John Tolva’s broad perspectives on technology and how it can be designed and deployed to benefit society, especially in cities, will enrich our students experiences, and help shape our research agenda, said Martin Dunn, dean of the College of Engineering, Design and Computing.
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.
