Electrical Engineering, Accelerated Masters (BSEE & MSE)

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs (A-Z)

The BSEE-MSE Accelerated Master’s (AM) Degree offers the opportunity for outstanding Electrical Engineering students who are still pursuing the Bachelor of Science in Electrical Engineering (BSEE) to begin earning credit toward the Master of Science in Engineering (MSE).



  1. An updated undergraduate plan of study, outlining all requirements for the BSEE degree completion and listing the graduate courses that will be posted to the baccalaureate transcript, must be approved by the student’s academic advisor.


  1. Before an undergraduate BSEE-MSE AM student may register for graduate courses, an AM Application Form indicating the courses to be taken for graduate credit must be approved by the College, the Department, and the Graduate School. 


  1. Graduate Coursework:
    1. BSEE-MSE AM students may apply a maximum of 6 graduate hours to the BSEE degree. Graduate coursework in the following areas will not count in the BSEE-MSE AM program toward the BSEE degree: travel study, independent study/project/research, directed study, directed readings, practicum, internships, other field-based placement, or thesis;
    2. Grades earned in graduate-level courses must meet the minimum GPA required by the Graduate School of 3.00. Graduate courses in which a GPA is less than 3.00 may be counted towards satisfaction of the BSEE degree but not towards the MSE degree;
    3. To remain in an BSEE-MSE AM degree program, the student must maintain at least a 3.00 overall GPA in graduate coursework.


  1. The graduate hours taken to fulfill baccalaureate degree requirements will be fully transferable to the MSE degree and will show on both the graduate and undergraduate transcripts.
  2. The BSEE degree must be awarded following the completion of the undergraduate degree requirements and at least two semesters before the graduate degree is awarded.
  3. If an AM student requests admission to any other master’s program (or does not complete the MSE degree within the prescribed time), the joint hours posted to the graduate transcript will be removed.
