The Electrical and Computer Engineering degree is offered at Colorado Mesa University through the CMU/CU Boulder Engineering Partnership Program and is delivered in its entirety in Grand Junction. The first two years of the program are taught by CMU faculty and the second two years of the program are taught largely by CU Boulder faculty who live permanently in Grand Junction. 

The Electrical and Computer Engineering degree prepares students for careers in a wide range of industries through the rigorous study of electrical and computer engineering. Students participate in hands-on engineering design projects beginning their first year and continue to throughout their time at CMU culminating with their senior design projects.

Electrical and computer engineering graduates can work in a variety of industries including healthcare, security, energy and telecommunications.

Student Outcomes

In order to fulfill the Program Educational Objective, specific student performance outcomes must be met at the time of graduation. These Student Outcomes for the Partnership Program are:

  1. An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics,
  2. An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors,
  3. An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences,
  4. An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts,
  5. An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives,
  6. An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions,
  7. An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.

Accreditation

Students completing the University of Colorado Boulder/Colorado Mesa University Electrical and Computer Engineering (ECE) Partnership Program will receive a Bachelor of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering Degree from the University of Colorado Boulder College of Engineering and Applied Science. The program is currently in the process of seeking approval by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET). Both Colorado Mesa University and the University of Colorado Boulder are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission.

Educational Objectives

Our curriculum is designed to help graduates become viable in a globally competitive work environment. Our graduates are able to establish a portfolio of up-to-date skills, abilities and accomplishments that distinguish them from the competition. Further, the core disciplines and intellectual skills they develop form the framework for a successful career in an environment where the state of practice advances rapidly.

Within the first three years after graduation, our alumni will have built on the educational foundation gained through our program by establishing themselves in professional careers and/or pursuing a graduate degree. In addition, within these three years, our alumni should have begun to generate new knowledge and/or exercise leadership in their positions.
