The Accelerated Graduate Pathway: Mechanical Engineering program provides outstanding students the opportunitity to earn a Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering while completing some courses towards a Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Students who have: 1) an overall GPA of 3.25, 2) a GPA of 3.25 in the courses required of the Mechanical Engineering program, 3) completed 75 semester hours, and 4) completed ME 3011, ME 3022, and MATH 3400 are eligible for conditional admission to the Masters program.
Students will be eligible to apply when they have earned or are in-process of completing 75 credit hours; students will be eligible to enroll in courses when they have earned or are in-process of completing 85 credit hours.
Application is limited to students who:
- Are in the Mechanical Engineering Major (B.S.M.E.) (BS7257)
- Have completed ME 3011, ME 3022, and MATH 3400
- Have a cumulative GPA of 3.25
- Have a 3.25 GPA in all Engineering courses required of the BS7257 program.
Opportunities Upon Graduation
The Accelerated Graduate Pathway (AGP) program is intended to allow students to take courses towards a graduate degree while enrolled as an undergraduate student. As such, students are expected to pursue graduate coursework upon completion of their undergraduate degree.
Students may complete up to 16 hours of graduate-level coursework under the AGP. Of these courses, up to nine hours can apply to the undergraduate degree requirements. The ME courses available to be taken for dual-credit in the AGP program are all dual-listed ME techical electives (ME 4XXX/ME 5XXX), plus Mechantronics (ME 4550/ME 5550) which is a required undergraduate courses. Register for the graduate version (5XXX) of the dual-listed course and it will also count for the undergraduate course (4XXX) i nthe undergraduate degree requirements.
