Message from the Dean

 Michael Keables, Interim Dean

Thank you for visiting the Daniel Felix Ritchie School of Engineering & Computer Science website at the University of Denver. 

The Ritchie School of Engineering & Computer Science has entered a new, exciting, and challenging era. In order to meet the increasing demand for graduates in engineering and the sciences, we are expanding and improving our facilities, adding new faculty and redefining our curricula to include opportunities for innovation and entrepreneurship. With a career placement rate of 95% within six months of graduation, our undergraduate students are not only well prepared for a career in engineering or computer science, they are sought after by many of the top companies and graduate programs in the U.S. and abroad. 

As part of the University's dedication to the public good, Ritchie School faculty and students are working together to address a number of issues facing society. With emphases on bioengineering, materials science, robotics, unmanned systems, power and energy systems, cyber security, software engineering and humane games, our research teams are designing improved orthopaedic devices, new materials for high voltage transmission lines, robots for search and rescue and social emotive applications, renewable energy systems and smart grids, navigation and controls systems for unmanned vehicles and computer programming to enhance information security and privacy.

In addition to traditional undergraduate, masters and doctoral degree programs, we offer several dual degree options where students may earn both an undergraduate and graduate degree in five years. Programs include BS/MS degrees in engineering, computer science and the sciences, as well as a combined undergraduate engineering or computer science degree with an MBA from the Daniels College of Business. We also offer one-year masters degrees in several engineering disciplines for practicing engineers wishing to expand their education. These forward-looking programs join our traditional degrees to guarantee a multi-dimensional and holistic education that prepares our graduates in the emerging areas of science and technology. The Ritchie School emphasizes social responsibility and international perspective as we tailor degrees to the needs and interests of our students.

I encourage you to visit our campus and facilities to learn more about the exciting opportunities available in the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science.
