Always just a little bit ahead of the game? Eager to learn and ready for a challenge? If you have the academic might, you can earn a bachelor’s and master’s degree in less time.
You can count graduate courses toward both degrees, cutting down your time to graduate by a semester of more. You’ll pay less and be a more marketable professional. You’ll also be able to take courses and do research not normally available to undergraduates.
Which degrees can I combine?
You can earn a Bachelor of Science degree in Electrical Engineering combined with any of the following Master Degrees:
- Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering
- Master of Science in Electrical Engineering
- Master of Science in Telecommunications and Networking
Students who have completed a minimum of 90 hours towards their BS degree in Computer Engineering and have earned at least a 3.3 GPA on both overall and upper division courses may, upon recommendation from three faculty members, apply for admission in the combined BSMS program.
FIU and the College of Engineering and Computing offer a variety of fellowships, assistantships, and scholarships to qualified domestic and international students. The amounts of these awards vary depending on the type of award, but they may provide full tuition and a monthly stipend. Students in this program are eligible for graduate assistantships upon admission.
The BSMS Program is continuous. You must meet the degree requirements for both the BS and the MS programs you choose. You may count up to nine hours of graduate courses as elective credits for both the BS and the MS degree. You will receive a BS degree and a MS degree on the same date, after requirements for both are completed.
