Five-year BS/MS Program
AME juniors contemplating graduate work may consider the special five-year program offered by the ECE Department in which students earn a BS AME degree plus a Masters Degree in Electrical Engineering. This program enables a seamless transition between undergraduate and graduate study. Program enrollment is competitive and students must apply for admission before the spring of their senior years. Students may take up to 8 credit hours of courses in their Senior year that will count toward their MS degree. Through a special program initiated by the Hajim School of Engineering and Applied Science, students who have been formally accepted into the program will be granted a 50% tuition scholarship for the fifth year of study (only after the BS degree has been awarded). Additional financial support may be available for exceptionally qualified students.
Students should consult the UR Graduate Studies Official Bulletin for the MS degree requirements and they should meet with a faculty member to develop an integrated BSAME/MSEE program of study.
