Accelerated BS/MS Program


This program allows outstanding undergraduates to begin the coursework for the Master of Science in Electrical or Computer Engineering during their senior year. Students are encouraged to begin planning to enter the Accelerated BS/MS 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, who are selected into this program, may choose EECE electives at the 6000 level that will allow them to complete their BS degree while also beginning the coursework toward their MS degree. However, any graduate coursework will not apply to the undergraduate GPA.

Students may apply for the program once they have completed one semester of junior course work. In order to remain in the program past the junior year, students must maintain a GPA of at least 3.25. Up to 9 hours of graduate course work may be applied to both the undergraduate and graduate programs. To continue in the program past the BS, students must apply for full admission into the Graduate School and either the Electrical or Computer Engineering MS program during their senior year. Students that are eligible for the ABM program will have the GRE requirement waived.
