4+1: Combined BS/MS
The 4+1 combined BS/MS program allows a student to get a BSEE degree in 4 years, and then an MSEE degree at the end of the 5th year. In order to be qualified for the 4+1 BS/MS program, a student needs to have an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher.
Students can apply for the 4+1 combined BS/MS program during their junior or senior year. Once admitted into the program, the student can take graduate level courses during their junior or senior years. Up to 9 hours of those graduate level courses can be counted towards both the BSEE and MSEE degrees. An additional 3 graduate level hours taken during undergraduate study can be counted towards the MSEE degree. In this case, the student will only need 18-21 hours during his/her MSEE study.
In order to participate in the 4+1 combined BS/MS program, a student must have an undergraduate GPA of 3.5 or higher. All the other degree requirements are the same for the regular BSEE and MSEE degrees.
