The Community for Accredited Online Schools, a leading resource provider for higher education information, has ranked the best colleges with online programs in the state of Colorado. Among the schools that were ranked, 16 four-year colleges made the list, with University of Denver, Colorado State University Fort Collins, University of Colorado Boulder, University of Northern Colorado and University of Colorado Denver coming in as the top five schools. The state’s top 13 two-year schools were also ranked, with Trinidad State Junior College, Pueblo Community College, Aims Community College, Otero Junior College and Colorado Northwestern Community College taking the top five spots. “Colorado’s schools are becoming increasingly attuned to the needs of nontraditional students,” said Doug Jones, CEO and founder of AccreditedSchoolsOnline.org. “The accredited schools on our list accommodate all kinds of schedules with their online programs so that busy students can finish their degrees and receive a top-quality learning experience.” Schools on the “Best” list must meet specific base requirements to be included: each must be institutionally accredited, public or private not-for-profit. Each college was also scored based on more than a dozen additional data points, including student to teacher ratios, graduation rates and financial aid availability.

The nation’s best Online Engineering Degree Programs are being highlighted by leading higher education information and resource provider AffordableCollegesOnline.org for 2016-2017. The site released its ranking of the top 50 four-year schools and top 33 two-year schools offering engineering degrees online, honoring Siena Heights University, Eastern Michigan University, Texas A&M University, Indiana State University and Missouri State University Springfield as the highest scoring four-year schools and Holmes Community College, East Mississippi Community College, Crowder College, Tulsa Community College and Diablo Valley College as the highest scoring two-year schools. "Surveys show one of the most popular college major choices for high school seniors is engineering,” said Dan Schuessler, CEO and Founder of AffordableCollegesOnline.org. “As we see more colleges take their programs online to meet the growing demand, it’s important for us to highlight schools going the extra mile by offering the best combination of affordability and quality online engineering curriculum for students.” Colleges must meet specific minimum requirements to qualify for a spot on the AffordableCollegesOnline.org ranking. Each must be regionally accredited and hold public or private not-for-profit status. Maximum in-state tuition cost requirements are also set at $5,000 or less annually for two-year schools and $25,000 or less annually for four-year schools. Eligible colleges are scored based on more than a dozen unique data points, including financial aid offerings, graduation rates and variety of online programs. Final rankings are determined based on these school-specific scores. An alphabetical list of the schools on the 2016-2017 Best Online Engineering Degrees list can be found below.

The range of molybdenum hydride complexes that are sought to participate in the important catalytic hydrodenitrogenation process (HDN) of nitrogen containing polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons were evaluated by DFT studies. The previously synthesized stable (η6-quinoline)Mo(PMe3)3 complex 1N, in which molybdenum is bonded to the heterocyclic ring, was chosen as a model. The hydrogenation of the quinone heterocycle, which was postulated as the initial step in the overall HDN reaction, is found to occur via three consecutive steps of the oxidative addition of dihydrogen to Mo in 1N. Successive transfer of hydrogen atoms from the metal to the heterocycle leads to the ultimate formation of the tetrahydrido molybdenum intermediate Mo(PMe3)4H413 and 2,2,3,3-tetrahydroquinoline C9H11N 14. All the involved intermediates and transition states have been fully characterized by DFT. This computational modeling of the hydrogenation of quinoline, as a part of extended HDN catalytic processes, provides a fundamental understanding of such mechanisms. © The Royal Society of Chemistry and the Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique.
