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


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree programs listed by academic unit

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


  • A cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher is required at the time of application

To apply, student should submit the following to the grad track coordinator of the department before the first semester of their senior year:

  • A completed grad track application form, and
  • An up-to-date official transcript

The student’s application will be reviewed by the undergraduate and graduate coordinators.

After a student is admitted to the grad track program, the student must apply to the Toulouse Graduate School during their senior year for admission to the MS program in electrical engineering, which should follow the same application procedure, application deadlines, and admission requirements as the regular graduate applications for admission to the MS program in electrical engineering.

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. After being accepted into the grad track option, the student must complete the BS within one year of the first graduate level course he or she takes.

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 fully admitted to the MS program.

The student must enroll in graduate school in the long semester within one year 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 within one year 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 any three graduate courses from the courses listed below in the senior year of the program (may be changed only if approved by both the EE undergraduate and graduate coordinators):

  • EENG 5310 - Control Systems Design
  • EENG 5320 - Systems Modeling and Simulation
  • EENG 5520 - Design and Testing of Digital Systems
  • EENG 5530 - Analog Integrated Circuit Design
  • EENG 5610 - Digital Signal Processing
  • EENG 5810 - Digital Communications

In the senior year, in addition to the approved graduate courses, the student is required to take all remaining courses required for the BS with a major in electrical engineering .

After receiving his or her BS degree and being enrolled in the graduate program, the student is required to take all remaining courses required for the MS degree with a major in electrical engineering (see Graduate Catalog).
