BS/MS Program

To all Junior-Year Structural Engineering Majors:


The Structural Engineering Department offers a Bachelor's/Master's degree program to enable students to complete both the B.S. and M.S. degree in an accelerated time frame. Undergraduate students in the department who have at least 148 quarter units with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher are eligible to apply.

Acceptance into this program is an honor which carries with it practical benefits--the graduate application process is simplified (no GREs or letters of recommendation required) and advanced students are allowed to take graduate-level courses.

Structural Engineering students accepted into the program must follow the department and college requirements for the remainder of their undergraduate work in addition to the requirements for the integrated program. For transfer students to be eligible for this program, they must have completed at least two quarters in residence at UCSD and have a GPA of 3.5 or higher.


If the student's application is approved by the department, the student will apply to the master's graduate program the following fall quarter (senior year) of undergraduate study.
