Any B.S. in Engineering to M.S. in Software Engineering

Exceptional students are invited to pursue a Combined Master of Science in Software Engineering (MSSE) degree program. In this option, up to nine hours of graduate coursework may be taken to fulfill undergraduate technical elective requirements and specified elective courses required for their undergraduate degree. These hours will count toward both the BS and MSSE degree requirements provided that the student is enrolled in the combined MSSE option and receives a "B" or better in the course. Graduate courses taken in satisfaction of this program must be selected from the list of approved courses, targeted substitutions, or by arrangement with the Combined MSSE program coordinator.

Students will be dropped from the program if their GPA falls below a 3.0.  Students enrolled in this combined option on the basis of completing a Computer Science Minor will be dropped from the program if that Minor is not completed.

The Bachelor of Science degree will be conferred upon completion of all bachelor’s degree requirements.  The Master of Science in Software Engineering degree will be conferred upon completion of all master’s degree requirements.

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