B.S. in Aeronautical Science to M.S. in Uncrewed Systems

This program allows the exceptional student to complete the Bachelor of Science in Aeronautical Science (BSAS) and Master of Science in Uncrewed Systems (MSUNC) degrees. This special program will challenge students and develop their knowledge and understanding of concepts in aeronautical science while integrating their skills in aviation and aerospace applications. The applicant must have at least a 3.00 GPA and have demonstrated superior academic capability.

Upon completing the BSAS requirements, the Bachelor of Science degree in Aeronautical Science will be conferred, and students will be enrolled in the MSUNC degree. In any graduate course taken by an undergraduate student, a grade of “B” or better must be earned. If a grade of “C” or “F” is earned in any of the graduate courses taken in lieu of the elective courses in the BSAS degree, the student will be removed from the MSUNC program and may continue to complete the BSAS degree only.

If the student chooses to leave the program before the completion of the MSUNC program and has acquired the minimal hours required for graduation with the BS in Aeronautical Science, any MSUNC transition courses used to meet graduation requirements will be noted as undergraduate courses for the purpose of graduation.

Approved Courses for the Combined Option

Students enrolled in the combined option must consult their academic advisor and the MSUNC program coordinator to determine appropriate course selection. Up to three 500-level graduate courses may be taken, replacing an equal number of upper-level and/or any level open elective courses in the BSAS degree.
