Students may earn the Master of Engineering in Engineering Management (ME-EM) degree as part of the Bachelor's–Accelerated Master's (BAM) degree program, which allows currently enrolled CU Boulder undergraduate students the opportunity to earn a bachelor's and master's degree in a shorter period of time. Students receive the bachelor's degree first, but begin taking graduate coursework as undergraduates (typically in their senior year).

This program will provide undergraduate students who have a strong interest in a leadership-focused education an opportunity to complement their technical degree with a ME-EM degree. This BAM program enables students to deepen their fundamental understanding of leadership, management, business and entrepreneurship through rigorous graduate courses. Once they have completed their BS degree, these students would have the option to pursue the ME degree while simultaneously working. The ME degree also offers greater access and flexibility to complete courses in person or online (asynchronously or synchronously).

For more information, see the Accelerated Master's tab for the associated bachelor's degree(s): 

Students should continue to work with their undergrad advisor to meet the requirements for their undergrad degree. 


  • The ME in Engineering Management (ME-EM) requires 10 courses, 4 core (12 credits) & 6 electives (18 credits): 
    • EMEN 5015: Engineering Communication-To be taken in the first semester after admittance to the ME-EM Program.
    • EMEN 5020: Finance and Accounting for Engineering Managers
    • EMEN 5030: Project Management OR EMEN 5405: Fundamentals of Systems Engineering
    • EMEN 5050: Leading Oneself
    • +18 EMEN elective credits (3 credits may come from non-EMEN 5000 level and above with approval)
  • While students are enrolled as an undergrad, they may take up to 12 credits towards the ME-EM; 6 of these 12 credits may be double counted toward both bachelor's and master's degrees.

  1. Students must fill out the BAM Intent Form, typically in the spring of their junior year, for admission to the program.
  2. Students must have at least junior class standing.
