4+1 Accelerated MS Programs

Looking to level up your engineering credentials? Our 4+1 Accelerated Master's Degree Programs are an exciting way for students to get further, faster.

Through our fast-track 4+1 bachelor’s/master’s programs, engineering students who maintain a GPA of 3.5 or higher will be automatically accepted into the master’s program in their field of study, if a program is available. This five-year program allows up to 12 credit hours taken as an undergraduate to count towards our 30-hour master's degrees, and up to 6 of those hours can be double-counted to meet both BS and MS degree requirements.
