Combined BS/MS Program

All BS programs offered by CISE are eligible for a combined B.S./M.S. degree. Each program is combined with the M.S. degree with the same name in the same college except for CSC, which is combined with the M.S. in Computer Science offered through the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.


A student wishing to apply to the combined BS/MS CISE programs must satisfy the following minimum criteria:

  4. Must have received a GRE score (combined verbal + quantitative) of at least 300 (new scale).

Note: Tentative acceptance may be made if the applicant's SAT score is at least 1200.

Students meeting the above criteria may obtain an application from the CISE Department Student Services Center, located in CSE E405. The completed application should be returned to the CISE Department Student Services Center.
