The bachelor's/master's degree option in mechanical engineering allows students seeking a bachelor of science degree (BS) in mechanical engineering to count up to six credit hours of graduate-level coursework (5000-level or above) toward a BS degree and either a master of science (MS) or a master of engineering degree (MEng) at CU Denver.
Students interested in this option are strongly encouraged to meet with an advisor in their junior or senior year for additional information regarding requirements.
Note: Completion of two 5000-level courses at the undergraduate level does not guarantee admission into a mechanical engineering graduate program.
The master’s degree is an advanced degree that provides students with the necessary training and technical knowledge to stay competitive in a rapidly changing field and to advance into leadership positions in industry or government institutions. A master’s degree also opens opportunities otherwise not available to graduates with only a bachelor’s degree. Graduates with an advanced degree typically receive higher entry-level salaries and have higher salaries on average throughout their career.
