The ECE Department BS/MS is a contiguous program for advanced, distinguished ECE undergraduates, leading to a Bachelor of Science (BS) and a Master of Science (MS). Students admitted to the program have access to graduate-level ECE courses and opportunities to do graduate level research under the direct supervision of faculty before completing their bachelor’s degree.
Acceptance into this program is an honor which carries with it practical benefits, one of which is the simplification of the graduate application process (no GREs are required).
Admission for graduate study through the BS/MS program is for the M.S. degree only. Undergraduate students wishing to be considered for the ECE PhD degree must apply to the PhD program directly.
Students should apply at least 4 quarters in advance from their BS graduation. There will be two application periods per year: every Fall (for Winter/Spring MS start) and every Spring (for Fall MS start).
