Accelerated Master’s Degree Program (4+1) for Bachelor of Science Students
A combined BS and MSME degree program enables mechanical engineering students to complete both degrees in a five-year period. Acceptance into the program requires a GPA of 3.3 or higher. Students interested in the program should begin the application process during their junior year. An application form is available in the department office. Applicants are required to meet with the director of graduate studies as part of the application process. In the program, students may take up to three graduate-level courses as technical electives in their senior year, which also count towards the MS degree requirements. Students must apply for admission to the Graduate School at the beginning of the spring semester in their senior year. For more information about the MS degree requirements, refer to the mechanical engineering graduate program section of this document. Interested students should consult with their academic advisors about the program.
Accelerated "Fast Track" BS-MBA
The Watson School and the School of Management cooperate to offer a combined Fast Track BS-MBA program, which allows Watson students to earn an MBA in one additional year beyond the normal four-year BS degree in Mechanical Engineering. Interested students should apply in their junior year, and can obtain more information from the Watson Fast-Track Masters in Business Administration Combined Degree Program page. That page includes a sample Program of Study for Mechanical Engineering.
