Why Choose DU?

In-Class Experiences

  • Engineering courses are taught by faculty, not graduate students.
  • Low student-to-faculty ratio of 15:1
  • Students work in laboratory settings in all but 1 quarter of their program; applying course knowledge to real projects.  Our average lab size is 20 students.
  • Meaningful exposure to computer, electrical and mechanical engineering disciplines in the first 5 quarters of study BEFORE students are required to select a major.
  • Students in all engineering majors jointly take both junior and senior design courses (Integration and Engineering Design, respectively), working together on multidisciplinary projects.
  • Opportunity to take Law School courses.
  • Option for either an MS or MBA through our five-year, dual-degree programs; saving both time and money.
  • Choice of math and science electives ideal for pre-med.
