Accelerated Masters Program
The Accelerated Masters (BS/MS) Program is designed specifically for outstanding students to complete the requirements for both their bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in aerospace engineering in an accelerated five year period.
The Accelerated Masters Program is intended for very capable and highly-motivated undergraduate students who wish to pursue graduate study in the department.
If you are interested in the department’s Accelerated Masters (BS/MS) Program, please see your adviser or any faculty member in the area of intended graduate study. For information about how to apply to Graduate School, please stop by the department office.
A BSAE student in the AEM AMP can earn up to 12 hours of dual-credit towards their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Following successful completion of all requirements for their BSAE, students in AMP are awarded their undergraduate degree. Students then continue taking graduate courses until the requirements for the master’s degree are met. In addition to the BSAE/MSAEM AMP, there is a BSME/MSAEM AMP that allows 9 hours of dual credit and a BSAE/MSME AMP that allows 6 hours of dual credit.
Students in AMP are classified as undergraduates until they complete all of the requirements for the undergraduate degree. They cannot hold graduate assistantships until they are classified as graduate students. At that time, students become eligible for graduate fellowships and scholarships.
To be eligible for a Graduate Council Fellowship, a student must have completed no more than six graduate-level hours when first classified as a graduate student.
