If you want to get an Associate's degree, you can complete a pre-engineering program. This includes lots of coursework in science and mathematics to prepare you for a Bachelor's program. You can expect to spend about two years earning 60 credits in an Associate's program.

A Bachelor's degree in mechanical engineering can be earned with four years of full-time study. Most programs in Colorado include 120 to 130 credits. You may take higher-level engineering courses like Circuits & Electronics, Computation Methods, and Fluid Mechanics. There are also several lab courses required, which can give you hands-on experience in mechanical engineering.

If you decide to continue schooling and attend a graduate program, you can typically complete a 30-credit Master's program in two years. Earning a PhD usually takes five to seven years, depending on how long it takes you to write and defend your thesis.

Tuition costs vary between schools, but if you are a resident, the average cost of tuition is $5800 per semester. If you are a non-resident, the average cost of tuition is $14000 per semester. In Colorado, tuition costs range from $1500 for residents and $2800 for non-residents at Otero Junior College to $13000 for residents at the University of Denver.

There are many different scholarships to consider. If you are a woman studying engineering, consider the Society of Women Engineers Scholarship. Another option for all students is the Colorado Association of Stormwater and Floodplain Managers Family Scholarship.

Before beginning your career as an engineer in Colorado, you have to be licensed by the State Board of Licensure for Architects, Professional Engineers, and Professional Land Surveyors.
