Electrical Engineering, BS with grad track option leading to Electrical Engineering, MS

Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: College of Engineering

The Department of Electrical Engineering offers a grad track option for existing UNT undergraduate students majoring in electrical engineering. In this grad track option, the student can take a maximum of nine (9) credit hours of graduate courses while completing the BS degree. After earning the BS degree, these credit hours can be counted toward the MS degree. Prior to registering for these courses, the student must be admitted to the grad track option and obtain approvals from the undergraduate and graduate coordinators.

Admission requirements and program policies

Admission requirements

Students applying to the grad track option should be majors in the department’s electrical engineering BS program. Students are eligible for acceptance at the end of their junior year. One benchmark is whether the student is ready to take EENG 4910 - Project VII: Senior Design I  in the following semester. Other requirements include:

  • A cumulative GPA of 3.3 or higher is required at the time of application
  • Two letters of recommendation from electrical engineering faculty members

The student’s application will be reviewed by an undergraduate and graduate committee. Once approved by the department, the student must apply to the Toulouse Graduate School before the first semester of their senior year.

Program policies

After being accepted into the grad track option, the student then can take graduate courses in their senior year as EE electives to meet the BS degree requirements. In order for courses to be counted toward the MS degree, the student must meet the minimum grade requirements of the courses in the MS program.

Students admitted to the program will be admitted into the MS program on a conditional basis. Once the student has satisfied all requirements for the BS degree and maintained a GPA of 3.0 or higher, he or she will be full admitted to the MS program.

The student must enroll in graduate school in the long semester after receiving his or her BS degree, and should complete the remaining graduate courses in the following year(s) to receive the MS degree. If the student does not enroll in graduate school in the long semester after finishing the BS degree, those graduate credit hours will not be counted anymore for the MS degree even if the student comes back to graduate school in the future.

Program requirements

The student is required to take the courses listed below in the fourth and fifth years of the program.

Year four required courses (may be changed only if approved by both the EE undergraduate and graduate coordinators):

  • EENG 5520 - Design and Testing of Digital Systems
  • EENG 5530 - Analog Integrated Circuit Design
  • EENG 5610 - Digital Signal Processing
  • all remaining courses required for the BS with a major in electrical engineering  

Year five required courses:

  • all remaining courses required for the MS with a major in electrical engineering (see Graduate Catalog)
