Frequently asked questions

The diploma that ME-EM on Coursera students earn is the same diploma that students enrolled in the CU Boulder campus program earn. There are no "online" or "Coursera" designations on the diploma. The diploma will state that the student has earned a Master of Engineering degree from the University of Colorado Boulder.

Yes, you may enroll in the non-credit versions of the ME-EM curriculum, allowing you to preview courses before committing to the degree program. You may upgrade from non-credit to for-credit at any time during your learning journey. Additional material and assessments must be completed to earn credit; this material is only available after you pay tuition.

This degree is self-paced, and there is no minimum or maximum number of courses required per session. We recommend new students take one class in their first session as they adjust to the demands of this graduate-level program. In subsequent terms, we recommend students take three or fewer courses per session, which is equivalent to a full-time graduate-level course load. Students who take three courses per session complete the degree in about two years. Students must complete all courses (30 total credit hours) within eight years.
