B.S. / M.S. in Mechanical Engineering
The accelerated Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering program is housed within the Mechanical Engineering department, and allows students with strong academic backgrounds to use up to three graduate courses to fulfill degree requirements for both the Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degree programs. Exceptional students may complete both the BSME and MSME degree programs in as few as four years, while gaining a combination of real work experience and advanced knowledge in electro-mechanical systems.
The Accelerated Program allows a student to count nine credit hours of courses towards both the BSME and the MSME. This reduces the time required to obtain the MSME degree.
Students must have completed 88 credit hours toward the BS degree and have a 3.2 minimum GPA to be admitted to the program. The degree requirements for the BSME and MSME degree programs apply, except that up to three graduate courses may be used to replace undergraduate technical electives, reducing the total number of credits to complete both programs by up to nine credits.
