Five-year BS/MS Electrical Engineering
From creating the latest smart phones to designing the power transmission systems that move electricity from wind-energy farms to our homes, electrical engineers play a vital role in our everyday lives. Take the first step to becoming a leader in this field by enrolling in the Five-year BS in Electrical Engineering/MS in Electrical Engineering program at Western New England University. In your five years of study in the program, you will earn a Bachelor of Science and Master of Science in Electrical Engineering in less time than it would take to earn them separately, saving you tuition. The strong educational background gained through this program will prepare you to enter the workforce as a highly qualified engineer or continue your education at the PhD level.
Provisional acceptance is granted to incoming freshmen who score a combined 1200 on the SAT Math and Critical Reading portions and have a 3.5 high school GPA. Students must maintain an overall GPA of 3.0 or higher each year (freshman, sophomore, and junior years) to maintain their provisional acceptance. Students who do not qualify for provisional acceptance as an incoming freshman can apply during the first semester of their junior year as long as they have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0.
Graduate students in the program will need to complete a total of 153 credit hours to earn a BS in their engineering field and an MS in Electrical Engineering degree. You will take four core courses in Engineering Management or Project Management, Quality Engineering, Design of Experiments, and System Integration. You will then choose an advisor and course of study for the remainder of your education. Your choices include an all-course option; a project option, which includes advanced coursework and a final presented project; and a thesis option, that involved advanced coursework and a thesis with presentation.
