College of Engineering and Applied Science Graduation Requirements


Hours

A minimum of 130 semester hours is required for students seeking a civil engineering degree; a minimum of 128 semester hours for bioengineering, computer science, electrical engineering or mechanical engineering degrees.


Attendance

Successful work in the College of Engineering and Applied Science is dependent upon regular attendance in all classes. Students who are absent should make arrangements with instructors to make up the work missed. Students who for illness or other good reason miss any examination must notify the instructor no later than the end of the day on which the examination is given. Failure to do so may result in an F in the course.


Non-degree Students

Non-degree students may apply 12 semester hours of course work (or up to 18 if taken in one semester) toward a bachelor’s degree in engineering from CU Denver.


Grade Point Average (GPA)

A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 is required for all courses attempted, for all required courses and for all courses taken within the student’s major department.


Hours in Residence

At least 30 semester hours of course work applicable to a bachelor of science degree in engineering must be taken at CU Denver while a declared student in good standing at the College of Engineering and Applied Science. Students must be enrolled in the college for at least the final two semesters prior to graduation.

NOTE: The electrical engineering program requires at least 40 hours of course work applicable to a bachelor of science degree in engineering, which must be taken at CU Denver while a declared student in good standing at the College of Engineering and Applied Science.
