Concurrent B.S./M.S. Degree in Electrical Engineering or
Electrical and Computer Engineering
Purpose of the program
The joint BS/MS program in Electrical, Computer, and Energy Engineering enables qualified students to be admitted to the MS program during the junior year and to work toward both the BS and MS degrees concurrently.
This program allows students to plan early for the MS degree, to take graduate courses as part of the BS degree, more flexibility in course order, the potential for a discounted tuition rate, and more efficient use of the final year of the program.
Admission to the program
Application for admission into the BS/MS program may be made at any time during or after the junior year. Minimum requirements for admission to the joint program for CU ECEE students are:
- completion of the eight core EE courses (see list below),
- a minimum overall GPA of 3.25,
- a minimum GPA of 3.25 in ECEE courses, and
- at least three letters of recommendation (at least two must be from ECEE faculty at UCB).
- completion of at least two core courses at UCB,
- completion of coursework which has been approved for transer credit equivalent to all core courses not taken at UCB,and
- completion of at least 15 credit hours at UCB.
Staying in the program
To remain in good standing, the student must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher for all courses taken.
a student in this program is treated on the same basis as any other student in the department at a comparable stage of his/her academic career.
- Until 128 credit hours of courses applicable to the BS or MS degree are taken and passed, the student will be governed by the rules and regulations applicable to any undergraduate student in the ECEE department unless specified otherwise in the regulations described herein.
- After 128 credit hours of courses applicable to the BS or MS degree are taken and passed, the student will be governed by the rules and regulations applicable to any graduate student in the ECEE department unless specified otherwise in the regulations described herein.
With the recommendation of the student's academic advisor and the approval of the ECEE Graduate Director, as many as 6 credit hours of ECEE courses at the 5000 level or above may be counted toward both the BS degree requirements and to the MS degree requirements.
A student in the BS/MS program must have a faculty advisor with whom he/she must consult to compose a degree plan, including a list of courses to be taken from the senior year through the end of the program. This plan must be filed with the ECEE Department graduate program advisor by the end of the third week of the first semester in which the student has been admitted into the program.
