This partnership between Western and CU will help meet the demands of our state’s rapidly expanding high-tech industries.
A new collaboration between the College of Engineering and Applied Science and Western State University in Gunnison, Colorado, will allow students to earn their degrees in mechanical engineering and computer science, including computer science with an emphasis in software engineering, as graduates of CU Boulder.
They will complete their first two years as Western students, and the balance as CU Boulder students, all while remaining on the Western campus. Graduates will receive a Bachelor of Science degree and diploma from CU.
“By expanding the number of qualified students who have access to a technological education, this partnership between Western and CU will help meet the demands of our state’s rapidly expanding high-tech industries,” Dean Bobby Braun said. “This partnership is good for the economic competitiveness of our state and will allow CU to continue to expand our reach across the Western Slope.”
