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 Entry Program, which enables students to begin working on the M.S.  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 6 graduate credits while still an undergraduate that  can be counted toward both the B.S. and the M.S. degrees, subject to approval of the student's graduate advisor. An additional 3 graduate credits taken while still an undergraduate may be counted toward the M.S. degree but not the B.S. degree.  Students in the Accelerated Masters Program must follow the M.S. degree requirements.
