Students at the University of Colorado Boulder have several options to fit their needs and interests in studying Global Engineering.
If so, enroll in a Master of Science Professional track degree program with an emphasis in Engineering for Developing Communities. This program will challenge you to expand your way of thinking about the world and engineering's effect upon it! Taking a holistic, interdisciplinary approach, you will learn to view engineering challenges as opportunities to help create a more sustainable, equitable world. Application directions are provided on the Professional Master's page.
Prospective graduate students interested in completing a traditional research-based MS or PhD program within Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering along with a Graduate Certificate in Engineering for Developing Communities should apply to the approriate group in step 5 of the admissions application and must clearly note their interest in completing the EDC graduate certificate coursework within their statement of purpose. Application directions are provided on the Research-Based MS or PhD page.
Current graduate students in any department within the College of Engineering and Applied Science can earn a Graduate Certificate in Engineering for Developing Communities. To apply, students need to complete an EDC Graduate Certificate Application/Enrollment Form, obtain the signature of their faculty advisor, and submit the form to Laura MacDonald. Note that the faculty advisor in the student's home department will determine which, if any, of the certificate courses will count towards the student's degree requirements.
