BS/MS Program

The Integrated BS/MS (Bachelor of Science and Master of Science) Program in MAE is intended as an honors graduate program for highly motivated and qualified BS students who wish to pursue an advanced degree. Students admitted to the program may, in their senior year, take up to nine credit hours of graduate courses that will count toward both BS and MS requirements.

Program of Study Details

The current regulations for the MS degree by the School of Graduate Studies require a minimum of 18 credit hours of coursework at the 400-level (or higher). Please note that any 400-level course taken prior to admission to the BS/MS Program cannot typically be counted as part of the MS degree. However Senior Project (EMAE398) may be included in the double counted credit hours toward the MS Thesis if appropriate.

The School of Graduate Studies allows a 300-level course to be included in the Program of Study of regular MS degrees. One legitimate rationale for a 300-level course in a BS/MS Program would be for a student to take this course as background in a subject that is not a normal part of their own discipline; such a selected 300-level course must be supported by the student’s Research Advisor. However, 300-level courses in the student’s major field are not normally to be considered as part of the Program of Study.
