 FIVE-YEAR COMBINED BS/MS PATHWAY PROGRAM

The department offers a five-year combined undergraduate-graduate program leading to the Bachelor of Science (BS) and Master of Science (MS) degrees. The objective of this Pathway is to produce, in five years of full-time study, an engineer who is fully qualified to enter into professional practice in industry. Students begin taking core graduate courses in their fourth year. Successful completion of the fourth year of the five-year curriculum will give the student enough credit and breadth of subject matter to satisfy university requirements for the BS degree, should individual circumstances arise that preclude a student from taking the fifth year. This Pathway also includes a Summer internship in industry between the fourth and fifth years.
Admission to the combined BS/MS Pathway is open to juniors who have attained a GPA of 3.2 in the mechanical engineering curriculum and whose applications are reviewed by a faculty committee. Applicants are normally invited in the Spring, during the second semester of the students’ junior year, for Fall entry. Details on the curriculum may be obtained from the Mechanical Engineering Department Office.
