Electrical Engineering Technology, BSET with grad track option leading to Engineering Technology, MS


Return to College of Engineering Return to: College of Engineering

The Department of Engineering Technology offers a grad track option for currently enrolled UNT undergraduate students majoring in electrical engineering technology (ELET).

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 electrical engineering technology BSET program. Students are eligible to apply to the grad track option during their junior year, after completing at least 75 credit hours (a benchmark of eligibility is whether or not the student is ready to take ELET 4780 - Senior Design I  in the following fall semester). Other requirements include:

  • A cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher is required at the time of application
  • Two letters of recommendation from electrical engineering technology faculty members

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

Program policies


After completing at least 90 credit hours, the student is eligible to take specified graduate courses for credit toward the BSET and MS degrees. Students should earn a B or higher in these courses to be counted toward the MS degree.

Students admitted to the grad track option will be conditionally admitted to the MS program Students who satisfy all requirements of the BSET degree and who complete the graduate courses required toward the MS will be evaluated for unconditional admission to the MS degree program.

Undergraduate students who have been accepted to the grad track option should complete all BSET degree requirements and graduate within 12 months of the first day of the semester for which they began taking graduate courses or enrollment in graduate-level course work will be suspended.

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

Program requirements


Students in the grad track option will replace three (3) ELET 4XXX courses with the corresponding MSET 5XXX courses from the list below for a total of nine (9) credit hours counted toward both the BSET and MS degrees.

  • MSET 5300 - Embedded Systems Organization (replaces ELET 4300 )
  • MSET 5310 - Industrial Process Controls (replaces ELET 4720 )
  • MSET 5320 - Introduction to Telecommunications (replaces ELET 4320 )
  • MSET 5330 - Instrumentation System Design (replaces ELET 4330 )
  • MSET 5340 - Digital Logic Design Techniques (replaces ELET 4340 )

See Electrical Engineering Technology, BSET  for the remainder of the requirements for the bachelor’s degree.
