Bachelor's to Electrical and Computer Engineering Master's 4+1 Program

The Bachelor’s to Master’s 4+1 Program option allows qualified Lewis University undergraduate Computer Engineering or Electrical Engineering majors to complete the Master of Science in Electrical and Computer Engineering (MSECE) program in just one year. Upon completion of at least 75 credit hours including the courses: ECEN 32000 or ECEN 37000, MATH 30000, MATH 22000, MATH 30500, CPSC 21000, PHYS 21500 and PHYS 21600; and achieving a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0; a student becomes eligible to apply for a Bachelor’s to Master’s 4+1 program option by completing the 4+1 application. Once accepted, the student may take up to twelve (12) graduate hours to satisfy specific course requirements in the Master’s program, and up to nine (9) of those graduate hours can be counted to fulfill electives in the Bachelor’s degree. Students must earn a “B” or better in each graduate course they take towards their MSECE requirements. A student who successfully completes twelve graduate hours as an undergraduate will have remaining 21 credit hours versus 33 credit hours required to complete the MSECE degree. Note that admission to the 4+1 is not an automatic admission to the MSECE program. A student will still need to apply and be accepted to the MSECE program provisionally, contingent on completing the baccalaureate degree.
