5-Year Bachelor/Master Accelerated Program

The five-year Bachelor/Master program is designed to attract the best current undergraduate students. The program is designed for students who demonstrate an interest in, and ability for, additional education beyond the bachelor’s degree. Students will have the opportunity to enroll in graduate courses during their third (junior) and fourth (senior) year of study.

Application to the program:

Only enrolled CSU undergraduate Electrical and Computer Engineering students are eligible to apply for the Accelerated Bachelor/Master Program in Electrical Engineering. Students are eligible to apply after they have completed 60 credit hours, with at least 30 credit hours earned at CSU. To be eligible for admission to the program, the student must have

  • shown significant progress in their degree program,
  • a cumulative grade-point average of 3.25 or higher, and
  • completed sixty credit hours, with at least 30 credit hours earned at CSU.

Application Process:

Students who wish to be considered for admission must complete and submit an application package to the Graduate Program Director of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Master’s Programs. A complete application must include

  • the Bachelor/Master Accelerated Program Application form,
  • two recommendation letters from ECE faculty, and
  • a one- to two-page written statement describing why and how this program will enhance the student’s scholarly and career goals.

Program Details:

Students admitted to the joint, five-year Bachelor/Master program retain undergraduate status until they meet the requirements for the bachelor’s degree, at which point they will receive the BEE or BCE degree. Once admitted to the combined program, the student may complete up to 12 credit hours of graduate courses while enrolled in the undergraduate program. These 12 credit-hours count toward both the undergraduate degree and the graduate degree requirements, either as electives or requirements. Upon receipt of the bachelor’s degree, students who have a 3.0 or better average in their graduate courses will be guaranteed admission to the Graduate Program. They will have up to 12 hours of graduate coursework (and grades) placed on their graduate transcripts. Student must attend the next regular semester after receiving the undergraduate degree as a graduate student to continue in the program. Graduate students must maintain a GPA of at least 3.0 to remain in the program.

Honors students

500-level courses that are already counted as honors credits can be counted to satisfy the requirement of 12 credits of graduate courses of this program.
