Accelerated Option in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering

Accelerated Master of Science Option in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering

For exceptional students enrolled in an engineering Bachelor of Science degree program, the Master of Science in Unmanned and Autonomous Systems Engineering (MSUASE) program offers the opportunity to pursue a combined Master of Science degree program. In this option, up to nine 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 MSUASE Core courses listed below.

Undergraduate students may apply to the accelerated MS option by submitting an application to the MSUASE 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 MSUASE 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 MSUASE core courses as well as courses supporting the UAS area of concentration, listed below.
