The Grad Track Pathway in Materials Science and Engineering offers early provisional admission to the master’s degree program to exceptional undergraduate students and is designed for these students to earn coursework credit towards their master’s degree while completing their bachelor’s degree in the same discipline. In this program, a student can achieve both bachelor’s and master’s degrees faster than if pursuing the degrees separately. The student will first earn the bachelor’s degree and then the master’s degree. The student must complete the bachelor’s degree and meet the admission requirements for the master’s program before being admitted to the master’s program.
Minimum requirements for eligibility to the Grad Track Pathway in Materials Science and Engineering are:
To be admitted into the pathway program, the student must submit the Admission and Course Approval Form to their departmental advisor, the Associate Chair of Academic Affairs, and then the dean of graduate education. Graduate coursework taken for Grad Track Pathway including any 5000-level or 6000-level Cer Eng, Met Eng or MS&E lecture courses will be identified on the Admission and Course Approval Form. Before enrolled into the master's program, the student must formally apply for admission to the master’s program with the GRE score required.
