The engineering program at CMU provides a hands-on, applied program of study for all engineering students. Small class sizes within the program offer students the ability to work closely with faculty and engage in projects. Students have some flexibility in their first two years to explore the different disciplines available.
The BS in Mechanical Engineering (ME) and BS Civil Engineering degrees are offered by CU-Boulder with the last two years of the program taught by CU-Boulder faculty in residence at CMU and students paying CU-Boulder tuition. The BS Mechanical Engineering Technology (MET) and AAS MET degrees are offered solely by CMU.
A fundamental guiding principle within the program is that in the spring of the senior year, both CE and ME students sit for the Fundamentals of Engineering (FE) exam. The FE exam is nationally-normed and designed to test the minimum capabilities of students. Upon successfully passing the FE exam and acquiring 4 years of industry experience, a graduating student is then able to sit for the Professional Engineering (PE) exam.
The engineering program at Colorado Mesa University (CMU) offers three mechanical engineering degree options:
Civil engineering is the newest addition to the CMU/CU Boulder Partnership Program. Classes begin in the fall 2016 semester
