Integrated BS/MS in Electrical and Computer Engineering

The student in this integrated BS/MS program will be on a fast track to receive the MS degree by completing graduate course sequence faster than a comparable undergraduate entered in the regular MS program.

Advantages:

    • Students will be on a fast track to receive their MS degree by completing their graduate course sequence faster than a comparable undergraduate entered in the regular MS program as the total credit hours for the integrated BS/MS program is reduced.
    • The GRE exam is waived for applicants to the BS/MS program
    • Early access to graduate level courses and opportunities to do graduate level research under the direct supervision of ECE UTSA faculty before completing their bachelor's degree.

Admission Eligibilities:

  • The minimum GPA for admission to the standard MS programs is 3.3. In addition to this requirement, the BS/MS program will have higher admission standard requiring both accumulative and major GPA≥3.3.
  • Applications to the BS/MS Program must be made after the completion of 75 but before 90 credit hours of coursework, usually in their junior year or in the sixth semester of the BS program.

Application Process:

  • Apply online (http://graduateschool.utsa.edu/) under the category of Integrated BS/MS (Electrical Engineering or Computer Engineering)
  • Submit Transcript from UTSA.
  • Attach Proposed Program of Study with the approval from the BS/MS advisors (Dr. Lars Hansen or Dr. CJ Qian).
  • Recommendation letters and a personal statement are both optional but highly recommended for consideration of scholarships.
