About this Program

This linked bachelor's/master's degree program is designed to provide an opportunity for exceptionally qualified engineering undergraduate students to obtain both a bachelors and a master's degree in Electrical and Computer Engineering. Typically undergraduate students apply at the end of their junior year for admission to a linked program. Full-time students can complete the requirements for the bachelor’s degree in four years and for the master’s degree in one additional year.

Program Highlights

  • Engineering students with GPA >= 3.0 can apply for the ECE graduate program through a linked BS/MS program.

  • Students can take two graduate courses double counted for the BS degree and a graduate degree.

  • For BS/MS program, students need only 24 credit hours and can start working with a research advisor during their senior year.

  • No need for a formal application such as reference letters, essay, and GRE scores
