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 G.P.A .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.
1. Only currently enrolled UCCS students in the Mechanical Engineering program may be considered for admission to the program. Transfer students must complete at least 24 credit hours in the Mechanical Engineering BS program before applying to the concurrent program.
2. Students may apply for the concurrent program after they have completed a minimum of 30 credit hours of the mechanical engineering core courses. Applications will be accepted until the graduate school admissions deadline for the department for the final semester of the undergraduate program.
3. Minimum standards for admission require a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.25.
