BS/MS in ISE Combination Degree

BS/MS in ISE Combination Degree

This program, offered within the ISE Department, offers students the opportunity to “double count” up to 12 credits of specific graduate courses to both BS and MS/ME degrees. On the undergraduate degree audit, these graduate courses can be counted as either required ISE BS courses or as ISE Technical Electives.

Details regarding the application process, as well as courses included in this program, can be found below:

Applying for the ISE BS/MS Combination Degree Program

Students interested in enrolling in graduate coursework to be applied toward their ISE BS degree must follow these steps:

1. Contact your ISE Advisor to formally apply to the ISE BS/MS Combination Degree program. You can do this as soon as you have completed all of your ISE Critical Tracking courses.

  • Students will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis by the ISE Advising team.
  • If approved, students will then work with their Advisor to complete the 4+1 Combined Degree Application Form and enroll in any requested graduate-level ISE courses.

2. Take graduate ISE courses and earn grades of “B” or higher in each course.

  • Your ISE Advisor will substitute these courses for required courses or technical electives in your degree audit each semester.
  • Only courses where students earn a grade of “B” or higher are eligible to transfer to the MS/ME program, but grades of “C” or higher will fulfil undergraduate requirements.

3. 6-10 months before completing your BS degree requirements, apply to the ISE graduate program. Pay close attention to the admission requirements and deadlines for the MS/ME program (GRE scores are REQUIRED for admission to this program).

4. Once admitted to the ISE MS/ME program, work with your ISE Advisor to complete the Combined Degree Request form and submit it to the College for required signatures.
