The Center for Advanced Engineering and Technology Education (CAETE) is the premier Colorado institution for providing distance learning to working professionals. For over 25 years, CAETE has been a leader in providing flexible, convenient access to graduate engineering and technology coursework, certificate programs, and master degrees. With a variety of distance learning opportunities accessible from virtually anywhere around the world, CAETE gives you the power to reach your educational goals without ever setting foot on campus.
CAETE is a partnership between the College of Engineering and Applied Science (Rob Davis, Dean) and the Division of Continuing Education and Professional Studies (Anne Heinz, Dean). As an administrative auxiliary unit (meaning that we run the distance learning and professional development programs for the college and operate as a self-funded entrepreneurial enterprise), all academic decisions are the purview of the academic departments and programs within the College.
The College of Engineering and Applied Science has well over 200 full-time, distinguished, and dedicated faculty members. Sixteen are NSF National or Presidential Young Investigators; 25 are NSF CAREER Award winners; two others are Presidential Faculty Fellows. In addition, six current senior faculty and four emeritus faculty are members of the National Academy of Engineering. One faculty member, Kristi Anseth, received the NSF Waterman Award, the organization's highest honor, recognizing exceptional achievement in scientific or engineering research. The college has 22 endowed chairs and professorships and hosts many distinguished adjunct faculty from industries nationwide.
Seventeen research centers offer additional opportunities to students for interdisciplinary study and support. National laboratories and numerous industrial firms involve the college's students and faculty in many joint research projects. Research expenditures during the 2006 - 2007 academic year exceeded $56 million.
In the U.S. News and World Report study published in April 2008, the graduate programs at the College of Engineering and Applied Science ranked 23rd among public engineering schools.
