The College consists of 4 departments including Aviation and Aerospace Sciences, Engineering and Engineering Technology, Computer Science and Industrial Design; along with the Advanced Manufacturing Sciences Institute (ASMI) and the Cyber Range.

The University

Established in 1965, MSU Denver was founded to serve students who were underrepresented in higher education whose life paths and experiences did not fit the traditional mold. Fifty-five years later, the University continues to serve more than 19,000 of Colorado’s extraordinary and diverse students, providing them with the foundation on which to build their unique aspirations. As the third largest institution of higher education in Colorado and the only one with an open access mission, MSU Denver is a model university for today’s college students. As a Hispanic Serving Institution, the University serves the most diverse undergraduate student population in the state, as well as the most first-generation students and Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals students. Nearly 80% of MSU Denver students work while going to school and the University is focused on making sure they have the well-rounded educational experience and wraparound services they need to excel.

MSU Denver is a unique, access-oriented campus community that values diversity, equity, and inclusion in all its forms. The student population consists of nearly 55% first generation students and over 50% students of color. The University creates an equitable learning and working environment in concert with individuals who consistently demonstrate commitment to equity and inclusion. MSU Denver greatly values the diverse identities and perspectives of its students, faculty, and staff and recognizes that to achieve a just and equitable society, diversity must go beyond simple representation. It requires critical inquiry and dialogue and a commitment to action. The University continues to strive in providing a culture of belonging for all community members to achieve personal and professional success.
