The department offers a five-year BS-MS program for qualified students. The primary component of the program is that qualified students may take up to 9 credit hours of approved graduate courses for their senior undergraduate electives and have them count toward both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees.

Significant Program Components

  • Students must have an overall GPA of at least 3.4 to be admitted to the program. Conditional admission may be granted after completing 64 credit hours of required coursework while full admission is granted after completing 96 credit hours of required coursework with a minimum overall GPA of 3.4 in required coursework.
  • Students must at least have conditional admission before taking graduate courses for both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. All courses taken for graduate credit must be approved by the chair of the program and the Graduate School.
  • Admission of students into this program must be approved by the department, the College of Engineering, and the Graduate School.
  • Students will not be eligible for assistantships until they complete their bachelor’s degree.

This program may also be used by students entering our doctoral programs directly after receiving their bachelor’s degree.
