IDP+ Accelerated BS/Master’s Program
For Students in Mechanical Engineering Programs Only
Students with strong scholarly and/or research interests may apply for admission to a combined bachelor’s and master’s degree program to begin their graduate programs during their junior or senior year of undergraduate study. Students who are eligible for the IDP+ program can also apply to be accepted into MECH498 Research Practicum in lieu of senior design. This plan allows for flexibility in the scheduling and completion of upper division undergraduate requirements while concurrently fulfilling graduate course requirements for the Master of Science (MS) degree in mechanical engineering. Students who are accepted into this program have the GRE requirement waived and are allowed to apply 9 credits of 500-level course work to both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Before applying to this program, interested students should review graduate research opportunities and the Graduate Study Guidelines.
