General

“Colorado State University-Pueblo’s undergraduate engineering program was ranked among the nation’s top 100 by U.S. News and World Report. The undergraduate rankings include schools that do not offer a doctoral degree in engineering.” See press release for more details.

Five engineering faculty members attended the 2016 meeting of the American Society for Engineering Education in New Orleans. They presented the following papers:

     Jaksic, N. "Sustainable Undergraduate Engineering 3-D Printing Lab."

     Wollega, Ebisa, and Vitor Ambrosio Winckler. "User-Based Collaborative Filtering Recommender Systems Approach in Industrial Engineering Curriculum Design and Review Process."
