The accelerated bachelor of science in engineering/master of science in mechanical engineering is initiated while undergraduates are completing the Engineering, BS  and is intended for outstanding engineering undergraduates who have worked with a thesis advisor during their undergraduate studies. For this program, graduate student course work begins in the students’ fourth year of undergraduate study and is completed with one academic year of study beyond the bachelor’s degree. A full year of study, beyond completion of undergraduate engineering requirements, is required to complete the program. Engineering students apply to the program after completion of a minimum of 80 eligible undergraduate credit hours, and enter the program after completion of a minimum of 95 eligible undergraduate credit hours (a minimum of 128 credit hours is required for the bachelor of science in engineering degree). The minimum GPA at the time of admission and entry to the program is 3.5.
