Electrical Engineering, B.S./M.Eng

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: School of Engineering


The B.S./M.E. and the B.S./M.S degree programs enables exceptionally qualified students and highly motivated undergraduates majoring in Engineering to obtain both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in a minimum of five years. The B.S./M.E. or the B.S./M.S program in Engineering, is applicable to the bachelor’s and master’s degrees in electrical engineering. The goal of the Undergraduate to the Graduate program is to accelerate the production of electrical engineering professionals who are capable of entering into the technology workforce and making significant contributions to society, while safeguarding the environment.


The number of undergraduate electives in the major may be reduced for B.S./M.E. candidates, thereby enabling them to begin graduate courses once they have met their general education requirements and the majority of the requirements in their majors.  After completing their senior year, all subsequent course work is at the graduate level. Graduate credits may be accepted in fulfillment of some undergraduate requirements; graduate credits used to satisfy undergraduate requirements may not be used again to satisfy graduate requirements.  


Admission Criteria

The Bachelor to the Masters (M.E. or M.S.) program in Engineering allows students to begin graduate study (concurrent with undergraduate work) in the second semester of their junior year. For admission to either program in Engineering, an applicant must have completed 85-credits and must have completed EEGR 317 and EEGR 322. A candidate for admission to either Bachelor to the Masters program must have a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.3 at the end of the sophomore year and must maintain this average in order to remain in the program.  Upon admission to the Bachelor to the Masters program students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of 3.3 each semester or they will be dismissed from the program and thereafter be only eligible to receive the bachelor’s degree.


This is the minimum requirement for consideration; it does not guarantee admission or retention. Candidates must submit written recommendations from the chairperson of the department in which they are matriculating and from one faculty member, who will serve as an advisor.  Applicants must also provide a typed statement indicating why they seek to enter the program, and a sample that is representative of their technical work. Acceptance into the program is determined by a B.S./M.E./M.S. Committee comprised of representatives from the department of electrical and computer engineering.  The application package is submitted to the School of Graduate Studies.


General Requirements B.S./M.E.  

Students for the B.S./M.E. program will be required to complete the B.S. degree requirements of their respective discipline, and a total of 33 acceptable credit hours of graduate coursework inclusive of 2 credit hours of seminar and 4 credit hours of Project Report. Successful completion and oral defense of the Report Project is required in lieu of taking a comprehensive examination.

General Requirements B.S./M.S.  

Students for the B.S./M.S program will be required to complete the B.S. degree requirements and the M.S. degree requirements for electrical engineering. Up to six credits of graduate coursework may count towards the undergraduate degree. For the M.S., the thesis option requires 24 credits and two thesis courses (29 credits).

Degrees Received

Upon satisfying both the undergraduate and masters requirements for degree completion, students receive both the Bachelor of Science and the Master of Engineering or Master of Science degrees. A student may elect to receive only a B.S. degree by taking EEGR 491, however, the student is no longer eligible for the B.S./M.E. or B.S./M.S. program. In order to receive a Master’s Degree at Morgan State University, the student will then have to apply to the traditional two year program.
