Engineering Management AMP

All students must meet the Requirements for the Accelerated Master's Degree Programs

Overview

Qualified undergraduate students who plan to earn a master's degree in engineering management may enroll in the Accelerated Master’s Program, which enables students to begin working on a master's degree while still an undergraduate. Students apply to the program in the second semester of their junior year. Following acceptance by the Graduate College, students may take up to nine graduate credits while still an undergraduate. Of these, up to six credits can be counted toward both the B.S. and the M.S. degrees, subject to approval of the student's graduate advisor. Students in the Accelerated Masters Program must follow the M.S.  degree requirements.  

Specific Requirements

Requirements for Admission to Graduate Studies for the Degree of Master of Science for Accelerated Students
