Well qualified high-school graduates may be admitted directly into the five-year BS/ME engineering program. These students will be changed to graduate status after 132 credit hours, at which time they must have a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0. (The grade point average requirement will be waived for students who have passed the Fundamentals of Engineering Examination.)
Students who do not meet this standard will not be given graduate status and will be awarded the appropriate bachelor’s degree when all the BS requirements have been met. Students attaining graduate status will be awarded both the Bachelor of Science in the appropriate engineering field and the Master of Engineering degree when all requirements have been completed.
