Admission to the 4+1 Program allows Lyle School of Engineering undergraduates to “double-count” up to nine semester-credit hours towards both their undergraduate degree and a master’s degree. In order to take full advantage of this program the student should do the following.
- Upon admission to a master’s degree program, meet with the assigned graduate advisor to plan out which classes that can double-count towards both degrees, and what courses to take when. (See Master’s Advising for how to prepare for this meeting.)
- Work with Jim Dees in the Lyle Graduate Office, who will record which courses to double-count and enroll you in graduate courses prior to receiving your bachelors degree.
- Continue to work with your undergraduate advisors to ensure that you meet all requirements for your Bachelors of Science degree.
Notes for Management Science Majors
If your undergraduate major is Management Science, the following guidelines apply:
- Two of your double-count courses will be the required EMIS 5/7362 and your advanced major elective EMIS 5/73xx. See your advisor for suggestions about options for the third course.
- It may be possible to convert your CSE 4360 Technical Entrepreneurship class into a graduate course for double-counting if you (a) enroll in 4360 and then (b) contact your 4+1 advisor about the process to follow.
- You are not able to receive credit for these graduate classes: EMIS 7351, 8360, and 8361. If they are required for your master’s program, work with your advisor to find a suitable substitute.
