B.S./M.E. DEGREE IN ENGINEERING

The B.S./M.E. degree program 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. program in Engineering, is applicable to the Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees in electrical engineering. The goal of this 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. As part of the application process, 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. 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 under the Project Report or Thesis option, and a total of 30 acceptable credit hours of graduate coursework.

A core requirement of three interdisciplinary courses (9 credit hours) is required of all students entering at the Master’s level.  These courses are carefully designed and coordinated to stress the interdisciplinary nature of the subject matter.  Students must complete the remaining 21 credits with courses from within the Department in which the candidate is enrolled.

 

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 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. 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.
