Students may earn this 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 Master of Engineering (ME) in Engineering Management. This BAM program would enable these 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. 

ME in Engineering Management requires 4 core (12 credits) & 6 electives (18 credits):

  • EMEN 5015: Engineering Communication-TAKEN IN FIRST SEMESTER
  • 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 that satisfy any of the 30 credit hours required for the ME in Engineering Management.

6 credits of the 12 credits listed above may be double counted toward both degrees. The 6 credits may be 5000 level or above graduate level coursework required for the ME in Engineering Management (see requirements above).

BAM Process & Requirements:

  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.
  3. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better.
  4. Students must have completed MAPS requirements.
