Welcome to Denver—the Mile High City—with 300 days of sunshine. A thriving arts and cultural scene, diverse neighborhoods, and the Rocky Mountain backdrop combine for the world’s most spectacular playground.
The city is home to numerous important engineering corporations such as CH2M Hill, MWH Global Inc., Jacobs, and AECOM Technology Corp. Denver also hosts several major government organizations, including the US Army Corps of Engineers Risk Management Center, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the USGS.
On the academic and training side, the Front Range area just east of the Rockies is home to seven universities with accredited Civil Engineering and Civil Engineering Technology degrees, four of which (the Colorado School of Mines, the University of Colorado at Boulder, the University of Colorado at Denver and the Colorado State University at Fort Collins) offer doctoral level research programs.
Denver offers stunning architecture, award-winning dining, and unparalleled views, all within walking distance from its famed 16th Street pedestrian mall. A free shuttle carries visitors up and down this central corridor, providing quick access to world-class art and culture, wine bars, restaurants, and live music hot spots in Larimer Square or historic Lower Downtown (LoDo). Upscale shopping awaits at Cherry Creek, while Denver’s seven professional sports teams showcase this city’s active spirit. Experience what the locals know.
