Computer Science and the Engineering Management Program have teamed up to offer an exciting dual degree for ME students. 

To receive the dual degree, you must meet both the Computer Science and Engineering Management requirements.

Computer Science Requirements

  • Earn a B or better in 3 CSCI 5000 level course in the 9 areas in Computer Science to meet the breadth requirement.
  • Take an additional 5 elective graduate level Computer Science classes (15 credits) drawn from the remaining CSCI courses for a total of 24 credits of CS coursework.
  • Take the remaining two graduate level EMEN courses (six credits). 
  • Earn a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 with no grades less than a C.
  • No courses may be transferred from other graduate schools or other programs, schools and departments at CU Boulder, except as approved by the Computer Science Graduate Committee.

Total Number of Credits

Students need to complete a total of 45 credits of graduate level course work. Out of these 45 credits 24 credits have to be CS courses and 21 credits have to be EMEN courses. A student pursuing CS ME (primary)/EMEN dual degree may use EMEN courses to fulfill the remaining 6 credits of course work after 24 CS credits.

Time Frame

Students get a total of five years to complete the requirements of this dual degree. There are no residency requirements. Students may hold either part-time or full-time status during completion of this dual degree.


Students filling out the candidacy application for CSME/EMEN dual degree will have to include the 24 credits of CS coursework plus 6 credits of approved EMEN courses to come up with the required 30 credits of the CS/ME degree within the dual degree.
