 Accelerated BS/MS Program Option for Engineering Management

Undergraduates currently majoring in Engineering Management at Missouri S&T may opt to apply for a Graduate Track Pathway, which allows students to transfer nine credit hours from their Missouri S&T Engineering Management bachelor's degree to their Engineering Management or Systems Engineering master's degree. In this pathway, a student can achieve both degrees faster than if pursuing the degrees separately. The benefits of the pathway for admitted students include:

1. Nine hours of 5000 graduate-level or above EMSE courses may be transferred from their Missouri S&T bachelor's degree to their EMSE master's degree,
2. The classes taken for shared BS/MS credit may be taken at the lower undergraduate tuition rate,
3. The GRE is not required for admission into the master's degree, and
4. Work on a thesis project may begin before the bachelor's degree requirements are completed (if thesis option is chosen)

No M.S. degree requirements are changed. The MS degree may be either a thesis or non-thesis option. To be admitted, the student must complete the Grad Track Pathway Admission and Course Approval Form. To be admitted to the student must have approval of their EMSE academic advisor. The program may be combined with existing honors research and emphasis area options. Admitted students will only have an undergraduate record in the Registrar's Office. Once they complete the bachelor's degree, and apply and are admitted into the master's degree then they will have a graduate record in the Registrar’s Office. The Grad Track Pathway Admission and Course Approval Form must be completed when the student has one year left in the bachelor's program. Courses to be transferred will be identified on this form, and on Graduate Form 1, which is submitted after the student has been accepted to the master's program. Students must apply for admission to the master’s program but will not be fully accepted until meeting all undergraduate degree requirements and earning their bachelor’s degree. The nine hours of transferred coursework that will be taken as undergraduate credit must be approved by the student's academic advisor, and may not be undergraduate research, special problems, or courses transferred to the bachelor’s degree.

To be eligible for the Grad Track Pathway, an EMSE undergraduate student must be:

•One year from graduation of their bachelor’s degree (excluding the semester they are currently enrolled)

•Have at least a 3.50 GPA in all EMSE courses taken at Missouri S&T,

•Have a 3.0 cumulative GPA.

Students will be admitted into the master's degree, so long as they meet EMSE graduate student academic performance requirements: To remain in the pathway, the student must maintain good standing within the undergraduate EMSE program, and must maintain continuous enrollment at Missouri S&T. Students must maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.00 until they receive their bachelor’s degree. Students must receive grades of B or better in the graduate courses they enroll in as part of the pathway course sequence. The semester admit term for the master’s degree immediately follows the semester that the bachelor’s degree is awarded. If the student exits the pathway before completion of the MS degree requirements, or fails to maintain continuous enrollment at Missouri S&T, the courses taken as part of the pathway may not apply toward graduate requirements in the event of future readmission. Credits earned in graduate-level courses will be posted according to established registrar procedures to the undergraduate transcript and will apply toward the student’s undergraduate degree hours as needed to obtain the undergraduate degree and thus ensure all stated degree requirements are met. Once the bachelor’s degree is awarded, the student is fully admitted to the master’s program, Form 1 is approved, the courses from the pathway will be included on the student’s graduate degree audit.

The student applicant is responsible for checking on how graduate coursework will affect scholarships and other financial aid. Once a student becomes a graduate student, they are not eligible for Federal Pell Grants, though are still eligible for Federal Financial Aid, and will be eligible for fellowships and teaching/research assistantships. International students should check with international affairs during completion of a Grad Track Pathway, to ensure immigration status will be maintained throughout the program.
