Combined BS/MS


  • Computer Engineering
  • Computer / Electrical Engineering


Students may apply for admission into the combined program at any time after completing the following courses with GPA of 3.0 or higher:
  • CMSC 201, 202, 203
  • PHYS 121, 122
  • MATH 151,152, 225, 251
  • CMPE 212, 306, 310
Admission to Phase I is based on the student’s academic record, an evaluation of the student’s Statement of Purpose as it appears on the application, and an interview. In particular, applicants to Phase I are expected to have an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher and an average of 3.5 or higher in computer engineering courses. Once admitted to Phase I, the student may take up to nine credits of graduate-level Computer/Electrical Engineering courses (with the exception of CMPE/ENEE 698, 699, 799) to be applied towards the requirements for the Bachelor’s degree. The student selects these graduate courses in consultation with his or her faculty advisor. In general, the courses selected will be used as electives in List A or B, as described in the undergraduate brochure and catalog.
Admission to Phase II is based on the same criteria as admission into the regular M.S. degree program, namely academic record, performance on the GRE Aptitude Test, and letters of recommendation. (Admission into Phase I does not constitute a promise to admit the student to Phase II.) Scores from the GRE Aptitude Test, and three letters of recommendation must be submitted before a Phase II application will be considered. In accordance with Graduate School policy, applicants to Phase II must have an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher, and must maintain a GPA of 3.0 or higher during the course of their graduate studies.
