"I never thought of going to any university other than
CU," says Cory Dixon, a native Coloradoan who feels CU-Boulder
has one of the strongest aerospace engineering programs available.
While pursuing his PhD, Cory is also a research assistant with the aerospace
engineering department, focusing on developing avionic systems for Unmanned Aerial
Vehicles (UAVs). A grant from the National Science Foundation has allowed the
department to lease unmanned planes equipped with sophisticated instruments,
which fly into unfriendly environments like northern Alaska to collect hard-to-get
Dixon is working with professors and other students to develop safeguards for
the small aircraft, including a de-icing system for the wings. "There will
be many new and interesting developments for UAVs in the years to come," he
If you are looking for a great place to further your engineering
knowledge, then CU-Boulder is just the place for you. The College
of Engineering and Applied Science at CU-Boulder enjoys an outstanding
reputation as one of the best graduate level engineering programs
in the nation -- and in the world. Graduate students work and learn
with a world-class faculty, recognized with many prestigious awards.
The college also ranks among the top public universities in sponsored
research funding per faculty member. We hope the links below will
help you find answers to any questions you might have.
Degrees are offered in the following areas:
Education: CU Engineering Online
Through our state-of-the-art distance education program,
students have the opportunity to earn a master's degree in five engineering
disciplines or earn one of several graduate certificates without ever setting
foot on campus. For more information, visit the
for Advanced Engineering and Technology Education (CAETE).
The International Graduate
Studies Program in Engineering is a certificate program that
enhances the Master of Science, Master of Engineering, and PhD
degrees. Students participate in a research exchange at a
European university. Students must be admitted to a graduate
program within the College of Engineering and Applied Science to
Graduate Certificate in Engineering for Developing Communities also
is available to graduate students in engineering and applied science who are interested in
sustainable community development. The four-course curriculum includes a
supervised field practicum.
