As part of the college’s mission to continue to expand the computing experience (often referred to as computational thinking) more thoroughly into all of our undergraduate programs, we have formed a new computing committee. The charge to this committee is to explore and recommend ways to improve the undergraduate student exposure to computing during their degree. In short, the committee will continue to put the (second) ‘C’ in CEDC, by:
- Improving first year computing experience
- Incorporate computing across appropriate CEDC coursework
- Developing/improving degree specific computing coursework
- Ensuring available resources – hardware, software, student groups
- Developing and promoting the uniqueness of computing across CEDC and seeking resources to strengthen our programs
The CEDC Computing Committee is chaired by Senior Associate Dean Doug Sicker (computer science), and includes Kendall Hunter (bioengineering), Dana Carpenter (mechanical engineering), Dan Connors (electrical engineering), Allison Goodwell (civil engineering), and Kate Goodman (Inworks).
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.
