We are an ABET accredited Engineering Technology program and our graduates can go on to take both the FE and PE exams. Our engineering programs are new and working toward ABET accreditation.
"I got my first engineering job at Erbtec Engineering in December 1989 through an Electrical Engineering Technology professor. So, I guess you could say that not only did I get my degree at MSU Denver, they helped launch my career as an electronics engineer."

2009 Test and Measurement World Magazine's “Test Engineer of the Year”
He led a project where students developed a water filter for survivors of the 2015 earthquake in Nepal and also to design a chimney that they could construct themselves to vent the smoke from their homes when they cook. His course, Humanitarian Engineering, takes students to foreign countries such as Costa Rica and Mexico, where they work on humanitarian mechanical engineering projects.
