Electrical Engineering, (Accelerated B.S.E.E./M.S.)

Return to Herff College of Engineering Return to: Herff College of Engineering

Accelerated B.S.E.E./M.S. Program in Electrical Engineering

This program allows outstanding undergraduates to begin the coursework for the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering during their senior year. Students are encouraged to begin planning to enter the Accelerated B.S.E.E./M.S. program early in their undergraduate career, in consultation with their advisor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. Working with the undergraduate and graduate academic coordinators, undergraduates selected into this program begin a carefully tailored course of study that will allow them to complete their B.S.E.E. degree while they also begin the coursework toward their M.S.

To apply, students must have a minimum 3.25 grade point average, and must submit two reference letters and a copy of their transcript to the Electrical and Computer Engineering department. Each applicant will complete an interview with the graduate academic coordinator in electrical engineering.

Students must also apply to the Graduate School for the accelerated B.S.E.E./M.S. program, which allows them to take graduate courses in electrical engineering. To continue in the program past the B.S.E.E., students must apply for full admission into the Graduate School and into the Electrical and Computer Engineering department’s M.S. program.

Only in ABM programs, up to 9 hours of graduate course work may be applied to both the undergraduate and graduate programs. However, any graduate coursework will not apply to undergraduate GPA.


Students satisfying the requirements for the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering may also satisfy requirements for a minor offered by a department in one of the other colleges. Requirements for minors are specified by the appropriate college and department. Students should submit application for the minor to the appropriate department chair. Candidates for graduation who satisfy requirements for a minor should file the approved application with the intent-to-graduate cards.
