The Master of Engineering—Engineering Management degree is a practice-based graduate degree designed to integrate knowledge and skills from engineering and business disciplines to allow students to develop effective responses to rapidly changing technological and business environments. The program recognizes that many engineers evolve into management and supervisory roles and require a blend of technical advanced engineering and business management education to succeed in today’s technical marketplace.
The program prepares engineers for effective participation in management of technology, management of technology based organizations, and management of technological change. The focus is achieved through a careful balance of graduate course work in business, management, and a technical area of the student’s work/academic interests.
ME EM Admission Requirements
The minimum requirements for regular admission into the Master of Engineering—Engineering Management program are as follows:
- Baccalaureate degree (BS) in engineering or a related science discipline from an accredited institution. Students should have a baccalaureate degree consistent with their desired specialization area.
- An undergraduate grade point average of 3.0 or higher on a scale of 4.0 in all college level academic work attempted.
- Evidence of mathematical maturity equivalent to the completion of the following university-level course work:
- Three semesters of calculus
- At least one semester beyond calculus (advanced calculus or ordinary differential equations)
- Linear algebra
- Probability and statistics
- Experience in a commercial, civil or government engineering/science career field (preferred)
Students are required to obtain two copies of official transcripts from all academic institutions attended (including UCCS if applicable) as well as three letters of recommendation, mailed directly to the EAS College Office.
Applicants who do not meet the requirements for regular admission may be admitted on a provisional basis subject to the recommendations of the Graduate Committee.
Currently enrolled UCCS undergraduate engineering students with exceptional academic records may qualify for guaranteed early admission to the graduate program—please contact the College for more information.
