Recently, the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science (RSECS) moved into a new $63M building housing state-of-the-art research and instructional laboratories, classrooms, offices, and innovation spaces. The Ritchie School has research strengths in biomechanics, robotics, unmanned systems, advanced materials and structures, machine learning, controls, and sensor systems with support from industry and federal sources. The MME Department offers the following degrees: BS, MS and PhD in Mechanical Engineering, MS and PhD in Materials Science, and MS in Bioengineering. Our undergraduate students complete a rigorous, comprehensive core curriculum in addition to a deep, hands-on immersion in their technical curricula.
Denver, the Mile-High City, consistently ranks as one of the best places to live in the United States. Denver's economy is rapidly growing and diversifying, with strengths in the aerospace, healthcare, financial tech, telecommunications, and IT-software sectors. Our region features a dry climate with 300+ days of sunshine annually and surprisingly mild winters. The nearby Rocky Mountains provide beautiful views and abundant recreational opportunities year-round. The city of Denver is home to several major league sports teams, diverse neighborhoods, and strong cultural and food scenes.
