CU Engineering isn’t just breaking new ground in our research efforts. We’re also developing new ways to educate students, with two exciting new degrees launched in the past year.
Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (MS-EE)
Launching Fall 2018
The Department of Electrical, Computer and Energy Engineering is launching an on-demand, fully online master’s degree that will be delivered entirely through massive open online courses (MOOCs).
While MOOCs have previously been known for being free and non-credit-bearing, they are beginning to emerge as promising vehicles for credit-bearing degrees.
ECEE’s degree is optimized for the modularity of MOOCs. A three-credit, semester-long on-campus course might become three or four individual month-long MOOCs, each targeting specific content areas. Students will select subjects that best fit their goals as they move through the program. This modular and stackable structure captures the curricular content of the existing on-campus master’s degree but adds an unprecedented level of flexibility.
Computer Science Post-Baccalaureate
Applied Computer Science (ACS)
The Department of Computer Science has launched an online, post-baccalaureate degree in applied computer science, a move designed to help meet the changing needs of students as the national computing workforce continues to expand.
The new CU Boulder program was started in part to help those with diverse academic backgrounds enter the computer science field. The degree is tailored to people who already have a bachelor’s degree but do not have the prerequisite coursework for graduate study in computer science.
