Five-Year Bachelor of Electrical Engineering to Master of Electrical and Computer Engineering (BEE to MECE)

Description

The College of Engineering & Science offers a combined Bachelor/Master of Electrical and Computer Engineering program.

In order to complete both the B.ECE and M.ECE degrees in five years, the student must (a) be very well prepared as an incoming freshman, ready to take our core Engineering courses; and (b) satisfy all the admission criteria (see below) at the end of the junior year, and (c) maintain a 3.25 GPA, in order to take graduated level courses while still an undergraduate.

  •  

    Admission Into the Program

    Qualifications for the 5-year Engineering program for new Freshman are:

    • A high school ACT composite score of 26, with a minimum of 22 in each section, and a minimum of 23 in the Mathematics section, or 600 on the Mathematics SAT score and combined Reading and Math of 1190.
    • A High School grade point average of 3.4 overall on a 4.0 point scale, and the same for the combined mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology courses.
    • Students must place into appropriate-level Freshman courses at Detroit Mercy in order to be able to complete their Bachelor and Master degrees in five years.

    Qualifications for the 5-year Engineering program for Juniors/Seniors:

    • Students with a GPA of 3.25 and 95 credit hours can apply for the program near the end of their third year or in the beginning of their fourth year.
    • Students must be on-track to complete their undergraduate degree in four years.
    • If accepted into the program, students may take up to 6 graduate credits in their fourth year that will count towards both undergraduate and graduate requirements.
    • In their fifth year, students will be registered as full-time graduate students, which requires that they are registered for 9 credit hours of graduate-level courses per term. These courses will be charged at the graduate tuition rate.

    To remain in the program, students must maintain a 3.25 GPA at Detroit Mercy, complete their undergraduate degree in four years and their graduate program by the end of their fifth year.

    Degree Requirements (BEE 139/141 credits + MECE 30 credits, 6 credits double-counted)

    The course requirements for the 5-Year Bachelor of Electrical Engineering to Master of Electrical & Computer Engineering include 139/141 credits of undergraduate course work and 30 credits of graduate coursework. Six credits taken at the graduate-level will be double-counted towards the undergraduate degree, so that the total credits completed will be 163/165 credits. The course requirements are based on the current existing requirements for each program separately. Please review separate catalog pages for Bachelor of Electrical Engineering and Master of Electrical & Computer Engineering for degree requirements.
