Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

Planning, development and execution of an engineering design project. May be interdisciplinary. Students work as individuals or teams. Preparation of preproposals in response to a list of RFPs generated by faculty. Assignments based on the ranking and quality of preproposals. Oral and written presentation of a preliminary design, including a literature search, top-level design, estimation of resources and schedule to be contained in a negotiated contract. The use of modern, top down and structured design techniques as appropriate and formulation of test plans for validating hardware and software portions of the design, culminating in an oral and written design review. Construction of the design and the collection and analysis of data to validate its performance.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

The mission of the Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science at the University of Denver is to nurture the creation and dissemination of technical and scientific knowledge and capabilities to enhance the quality of life for the global society.

The Ritchie School of Engineering and Computer Science helps to create the future of technology by providing an undergraduate and graduate education emphasizing cross-disciplinary knowledge. Engineering faculty members are creating multi-disciplinary educational programs that anticipate technological trends in research and industry, and engineering graduate students conduct leading-edge research that combines traditional engineering with emerging disciplines to create unique solutions to old and new problems and opportunities.

The University's well-equipped labs contain state-of-the-art equipment and software to support research in hardware and software design and hardware/software interfacing, as well as communications, mechatronics, signal processing, and optoelectronics. Small classes support DU's multi-disciplinary and real-time focus by providing close contact between students and faculty, allowing the University to meet each student's specific career goals.

The University of Denver is a private undergraduate and graduate research institution founded in 1864. DU has an enrollment of about 11,000 and is ranked among the top 100 national universities by U.S. News & World Report.

Denver is located at the foot of the Rocky Mountains, with a metropolitan population of 2.5 million enjoying outstanding cultural, recreational, shopping, dining and nightlife attractions. Denver has the greatest percentage of college graduates of any major metropolitan area in the US, while the state of Colorado is #1 in per capita technology workers.

Outside of the classroom the University of Denver offers a world of opportunity. The Daniel L. Ritchie Center for Sports & Fitness, complete with a natatorium and state-of-the-art workout facilities; the Lamont School of Music and the Newman Center for the Performing Arts; the well-stocked Penrose Library; and a wireless campus which makes it easy to work from anywhere, are just a small portion of the on campus amenities the University of Denver offers.

Students can enjoy participating in and/or watching one of our many Varsity, Club, and Intramural athletic teams including our back-to-back NCAA National Championship Hockey Team and multi-time NCAA National Championship ski team. The University of Denver certainly has the athletic success of a large state school but still offers the benefits of a small university.

If Sports are not your thing, the University of Denver has clubs and organizations to satisfy any passion. From the Alpine Club, DU�s largest outdoor enthusiast organization, to the Jazz Band�s at DU�s Lamont School of Music there is a home for any interest. If we do not have what you are looking for then Pioneer the way yourself! The University of Denver fosters the growth of it extracurricular activities by supporting new and growing organizations.

The University of Denver also offers a very active Greek Life with seven active fraternities and five active sororities. DU strongly supports what the Greek Life gives to the academic, social, and community involvement the University represents.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
