Accelerated Mechanical Engineering Option
Accelerated Master of Science Option in Mechanical Engineering
For exceptional students enrolled in an engineering Bachelor of Science degree program, the Mechanical Engineering Department offers the opportunity to pursue an combined Master of Science degree program. In this option, up to six hours of graduate coursework may be taken to fulfill undergraduate technical elective requirements. These hours will count toward both the BS and MS degree requirements provided that the student is enrolled in the accelerated MS option and receives a B or better in the course. Graduate courses taken for technical elective credit must be selected from the list of Mechanical Systems Electives specified under the MSME degree program requirements.
Undergraduate students may apply to the accelerated MS option by submitting an application to the Mechanical Engineering Graduate Program Coordinator. Students must have completed 88 credit hours toward the BS degree and must have a 3.2 minimum GPA to be admitted to the program. Students will be dropped from the program if their GPA falls below 3.0 or if they have not completed the MSME degree requirements within two years of finishing their undergraduate degree.
The Bachelor of Science degree will be conferred upon completion of all bachelor’s degree requirements; the Master of Science degree will be conferred upon completion of all master’s degree requirements.
Technical electives must be chosen from the list of Mechanical Systems Electives specified by the MSME program, listed below.
