The Master of Engineering in Engineering Management (ME-EM) program hosted online through the Coursera platform offers stackable graduate-level courses, a graduate certificate, and a fully accredited master’s degree in engineering management. ME-EM and Engineering Management Graduate Certificate on Coursera students earn the same credentials as on-campus students. There are no online or Coursera designations on official CU transcripts or diplomas.
This specialized program does not align with standard campus policies. Please refer to the Specialized Programs section of the catalog for more information.
There are no admission processes for learners seeking to earn the Engineering Management Graduate Certificate. All courses attempted and/or completed for credit will appear on an official CU Boulder transcript (unless dropped by the drop deadline) and will count toward the cumulative GPA.
To earn the Engineering Management Graduate Certificate, students must earn 9 credit hours in the required courses listed below. To earn the certificate, students must have a separately computed minimum cumulative GPA of 3.00 across courses applicable toward the certificate. Certificate courses in which grades below C (2.0) are received may not be applied toward the certificate requirements.
There are no formal prerequisites for the Engineering Management Graduate Certificate, but we recommend that prospective students have an undergraduate degree in engineering, science, or a technical field (including areas such as physics, applied mathematics, and computer science). If they do not have an undergraduate degree in engineering or a technical field, we recommend that students try the non-credit versions of courses to test their readiness before upgrading to the for-credit versions.
