B.S./M.S. Five-Year Dual Degree Program
The School of Engineering offers qualified Santa Clara University undergraduates the opportunity to earn both a B.S. and M.S. degree in five years. The program is open to Bioengineering, Civil Engineering, Computer and Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering, and Mechanical Engineering. This is an excellent way to save time and it opens up more career possibilities early on.
To apply, you will need to submit the Engineering Graduate Services' Online Application no later than the end of your junior year. The application fee and the GRE General Test requirement are waived.Your formal admission into the Master of Science program will not become effective until the quarter following your B.S. conferral (excluding summer quarter). Upon notification of your acceptance into the Graduate Program from the Graduate Services Office, you will be able to take graduate level courses beginning in your senior year. You will need 45 units of coursework for the M.S. degree beyond the bachelor's degree requirements. All courses that you take to count toward the M.S. degree must be approved by your faculty advisor on the Program of Studies form before your course registration takes place.
PLEASE NOTE: Computer Engineering students will complete the Waiver/Substitution form in place of the Program of Studies required by the Electrical and Mechanical Engineering departments.
