Any B.S. in Engineering to M.S. in Electrical and Computer Engineering

Exceptional students enrolled in an engineering Bachelor of Science degree program are invited to pursue a Combined Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering degree program. In this option, up to nine hours of graduate coursework may be taken to fulfill undergraduate technical elective requirements and specified courses. These hours will count toward both the BS and MS degree requirements, provided that the student is enrolled in the combined MS option and receives a "B" or better in the course. Students in this combined program must have a minimum of 120 hours of undergraduate credits in addition to any graduate credits to complete their undergraduate degree. Graduate courses taken in satisfaction of this program must be selected from the list of approved courses, targeted substitutions, or by arrangement with the MSECE program coordinator.

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.

Students enrolled in the Combined Program should take courses from the core concentration for their focus (Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering). Where relevant to a field of study, courses from the list of electives may also be used. In all cases, students are encouraged to consult with their academic advisor and the MSECE program coordinator to determine appropriate course selection and mode of substitution. 

Students pursuing combined programs should consult MSECE Program Coordinator to identify appropriate graduate courses to be counted toward their undergraduate degree.
