Master of Engineering

Master of Engineering in Electrical Engineering

A qualified student may enroll in the graduate program of the Department of Electrical Engineering to pursue the master of engineering (MEng) degree. This program is broad-based and is designed especially for students who want to further their education in electrical engineering, such as engineering administration, where course work in business management would logically supplement engineering studies.

A minimum of 30 semester hours of academic work acceptable to the Advisory Committee (within the rules established by the College of Engineering and Applied Science) will be required for master of engineering degree. At least 15 of these hours must be in electrical engineering courses at the 5000-level or above, and they must be taken in the CU Denver Department of Electrical Engineering. As many as 15 semester hours can be taken outside of engineering, including 3 semester hours of a master of engineering project. The project should cover some area of creative investigation performed by the student and may relate directly to their professional work and must be defended orally before the Advisory Committee.

Students may earn up to a maximum of 9 semester hours required for the degree through the Center for Advanced Engineering and Technology Education (CAETE) or from another accredited institution. These credit hours cannot be part of the 15 semester hours required from the CU Denver Electrical Engineering Department.
