Who We Are

Founded in 1893, the College of Engineering and Applied Science at the University of Colorado Boulder is the second largest of seven schools and colleges at one of the nation's top public research institutions. As Colorado's flagship university, CU Boulder has selective admissions standards and a comprehensive array of undergraduate and graduate programs.

Over the past decade, we have made progress in increasing the diversity of our 5,400 undergraduate student body. This year, our incoming freshman class is 24% students of color and 40% students who identify as women. While these proportions represent an improvement over past years, they still fall short of the proportions in the country, and in Colorado. The profile of the college’s 254 tenured/tenure track faculty, while more diverse than a decade ago, has not kept pace with student diversity. In 2020, 5.2% of our tenure-track faculty identify as Black, Indigenous, or Hispanic/Latinx, and 23% identify as women. We are committed to continuing to make progress in both the near and long-term future.
