The courses in this specialization can be taken for academic credit as part of CU Boulder’s Master of Engineering in Engineering Management (ME-EM) degree offered on the Coursera platform. The ME-EM is designed to help engineers, scientists, and technical professionals move into leadership and management roles in the engineering and technical sectors. With performance-based admissions and no application process, the ME-EM is ideal for individuals with a broad range of undergraduate education and/or professional experience.

Applied Learning Project
Throughout the specialization, learners will be introduced to the concepts of project management. You will learn the formal project management process which includes tools that are commonly used in the discipline. Learners will have an opportunity to apply these tools to manage a small “virtual” project. Upon completion of the specialization, learners should have the basis for a comprehensive final project plan.
