A five year degree program is available to the students enrolled in the BS program in Microelectronic Engineering. The program consists of completion of a minimum of 150 quarter credits that include fulfillment of the BS program requirements and 30 graduate credits required for the MSE program that include 6 credits for master's thesis. One co-op block may be substituted for graduate course work.
The MS (MSE) program consists of five core courses, four electives and six credit of thesis.
The BS program in Microelectronic Engineering requires completion of 129 credits that include two 4-credit professional elective courses, which may be chosen from the list of five core courses required for the MS (MSE) program. The following MicroE courses qualify as MSE electives that may be taken in place of MCEE-643:Thin Film Processes and MCEE 605-: Microlithography Materials and Processes.
The students enrolled in the BS program in Microelectronic Engineering, after completion of their third year with a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 are eligible to apply. The application must be endorsed by the student's academic advisor.
BS (MicroE): EMCR
BS (MicroE) - MS (MSE) before the completion of 129 credits: EMCM
BS (MicroE) - MS (MSE) after the completion of 129 credits: SESE
After the completion of 129 credits, graduate tuition will apply. Students receiving undergraduate scholarships or financial aid are advised to consult with the office of financial aid.
The program is structured to allow completion of BS-MS course work by the end of spring semester of the fifth year with an additional summer for completion of thesis. Students have a maximum of one year after the spring of fifth year to complete the BS-MS course requirements. If at the end of sixth year, a student has completed BS requirements but has not completed MS requirements, the student will receive BS degree only. After the sixth year, if the student wishes to complete the MS degree, graduate courses taken for the BS requirement will not be counted towards the MS degree.
