Accelerated B.E./M.S. Degree

Undergraduate mechanical engineering majors with strong academic performance (GPA of 3.0 or above) may apply for admission to the Accelerated Bachelor of Engineering/Master of Science (B.E./M.S.) degree program in mechanical engineering at the end of their junior year. Once accepted into this program, students will be permitted to take up to 9 graduate credits in replacement of the required technical electives. These credits will be applied towards both their Bachelor’s degree and Master’s degree, which will be awarded together at the end of the program after they have fulfilled the requirements for both degrees.
