B.S. in Mechanical Engineering to M.S. in Aviation Finance

This program allows the exceptional student to complete the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering (BSME) and Master of Science in Aviation Finance (MSAF) degrees.

Upon completing the BSME requirements, the Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering will be conferred, and students will be enrolled in the MSAF degree. In any graduate course taken by an undergraduate student, a grade of “B” or better must be earned. These credits will count toward the B.S. and MSAF degree requirements, provided the student maintains enrollment in the combined program and receives a "B" or better in the courses.

If the student chooses to leave the program before the completion of the MSAF program and has acquired the minimal hours required for graduation with the B.S. in Mechanical Engineering, any MSAF 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 MSAF program coordinator to determine appropriate course selection. Students will take ACC 517 and/or BA 523 in place of the third and/or fourth-year technical electives listed in the program.
