On Friday, Nov. 6, representatives from CU Denver and Trimble Inc. gathered virtually to celebrate a major milestone for the College of Engineering, Design and Computing. Thanks to a significant gift to the university from the California-based construction hardware and software company (which has offices in Westminster, Colorado), the CU Denver campus now boasts a newly opened, state-of-the-art technology lab.
The Trimble Technology Lab will provide students hands-on experience with the latest industry tools through a customized suite of construction hardware and software products. The lab will expand the university’s expertise in project management, architectural and structural analysis, design and engineering, mixed reality, 3D scanning, office-to-field solutions, and GIS data collection and GNSS positioning.
In addition to the Technology Lab, the gift will also support various programs in the Departments of Civil Engineering, Geography & Environmental Sciences, Physics, and Urban and Regional Planning.
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.
