At CU Boulder, we have focused our ME degree on professional master's programs that serve highly employable disciplines and provide skills based on industry needs. In ECEE, we have several such offerings. Please refer to Degrees and Programs for details. Note that our professional master’s programs are offered under a Professional Master of Science degree as well.
If the course syllabus has 3000 (ideally 4000) level pre-reqs in the same field (e.g. Applied Math for an Applied Math grad course, or, in most cases, ECEN for an ECEN course), then the 5000-level course will be considered a grad-level course with sufficiently technical content in the respective area. The key is that if it is a course designed to be taken by students without an undergrad in the field of study, it's not a tech grad course in that field.
In cases of doubt about a particular course, the student should contact the advisor and director of graduate students for prior approval.
All courses applied toward the degree must be taught by members of the graduate faculty. It is the responsibility of the student to ensure that the instructors are members of the graduate faculty.
Work already applied toward another degree, extension work completed at another institution, or correspondence work cannot be accepted except to make up deficiencies.
Transfer courses must have a grade of "B" or better but are not calculated into the GPA.
