The Concurrent Bachelor's/Master's degree program in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering department (MAE) offers the opportunity of pursuing the Bachelor of Science (BS) in Mechanical Engineering and Master of Science (MS) in Mechanical Engineering, leading to award of both degrees at the completion of the joint program. All the normal requirements for both degrees must be satisfied, except that six credit hours can be used for both the BS and MS. The program is normally a 5-6 year program designed for currently enrolled University of Colorado at Colorado Springs (UCCS) students.
Students admitted to the concurrent degree program will maintain their undergraduate standing until completing the BS requirements. Students in the concurrent degree program must be full-time continuously enrolled students (average 24 undergraduate credits or more per year, or 18 graduate credits per year, or equivalent combinations thereof such as 12 undergraduate and 9 graduate credits). Students must maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 throughout their enrollment. Any student not satisfying these requirements may be dismissed from the concurrent degree program, but will be eligible to complete their Bachelor's degree.
