The BS/MS program allows qualified students to earn both a BS (BSE or BSIE) and MS (MSE or MSISE) concurrently (BSE/MSE, BSE/MSISE, BSIE/MSE, BSIE/MSISE). Students can complete the requirements for both degrees in five years, thus shortening the normal time to receive both degrees from six years to five years. The degrees are awarded simultaneously.
Students should apply no later than the spring before the senior year. Students are required to take the GRE and to have a 3.0 GPA for regular admission to the MS programs. The application for admission must include a completed Engineering MS application form, an unofficial CSU-Pueblo transcript, and GRE scores. Students are strongly encouraged to complete an internship prior to enrolling in graduate-level courses.
Up to 9 credits of coursework taken at the 500 level while the student is in the 3+2 program will count toward both the BSE/BSIE and the MSE/MSISE degrees. Courses commonly used for such purposes include for BSIE students, EN 520, EN 571, EN 575, or EN 577, and for BSE students, EN 540, EN 541, EN 562, or EN 573.
All other requirements for the 3+2 program in engineering are the same as for the regular master’s degree. For more information, consult the Engineering (BS), Industrial and Systems Engineering (BSIE), Engineering (MS) and Industrial and Systems Engineering (MS) graduate programs.
