The Balsells Graduate Fellowship Program is a unique opportunity for students in the Catalonia region of Spain to complete their Master’s degree at the UCCS College of Engineering and Applied Science. A defining feature of the Balsells Graduate Fellowship Program at UCCS is that the students are studying in the fields of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, and Computer Science.
A Master of Science (M.S.) degree at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs requires 30 semester credits and may be completed with a thesis option or with coursework only. Balsells Fellows are expected to complete the thesis option, so that they obtain practical experience with a research project. The thesis option includes 24 course credits and six thesis credits, typically requiring 5 continuous semesters (including summer) or less to complete the M.S. degree. Balsells Fellows are encouraged to continue for a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree, which requires additional course credits and 30 credits for the Ph.D. dissertation.
