Electrical Engineering, BSEE/MSECE


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Programs of Study

The program is intended to provide outstanding undergraduate students enrolled in the BSEE program with opportunities to continue their studies toward a master’s degree (MSECE) in the department. This enables them to broaden their studies and improve their career prospects with competitive advantage by completing both the bachelor’s and master’s programs at an accelerated pace.

Admission Requirements


Students will be admitted to the School of Engineering under the current guidelines for admitting BS students. All incoming students will be informed of the option to pursue the combined degree program.  Only the highly motivated and top-quality students will be admitted to the combined degree program. Students who are admitted to the combined program will complete their application process for the MSECE degree and the GS Form 27 in their junior year for admission at the beginning of their 7th semester (senior year).  The students will have a primary classification as an undergraduate and a secondary classification as a master’s student. They will then be reclassified as master’s students at the end of their senior year, after the award of the undergraduate degree.

Candidates for this combined degree program will have a 3.25/4.0 and above GPA requirement, and must otherwise meet the requirements for admission to the Graduate School.

Degree Requirements


During semesters 6-8 Electrical Engineering, BSEE  students have a free elective, technical elective, and three ECE electives. They can use three of these (after admission to the combined degree program) to take three 500-level ECE courses. These three 500-level courses will be double-counted towards both the BSEE and MSECE degree. During the fifth year students will take 18 hours of 500-level ECE courses and a 500-level MA course to complete the Electrical and Computer Engineering, MSECE .
