Undergraduates accepted to an Accelerated Master’s Degree program can begin taking master’s level classes while still in the undergraduate program. Up to 12 graduate credits can be used to fulfill requirements for both the undergraduate and the master’s degrees, effectively reducing the cost of, and time to, degree. Graduates of this program will be prepared for direct entry into the job market or continuation of graduate study towards a Ph.D or other professional program.

AMD students would be permitted to take the graduate level EM 660 (Project Management) in place of ENGR 451, and three graduate-level elective courses in place of the Civil Engineering electives and technical elective.
