Combined Bachelors/Masters Degree Program

The Department of Civil & Coastal Engineering presently offers two variations of a Masters degree; the Master of Engineering (ME) and the Master of Science (MS). Effective Fall of 1999, the Department of Civil Engineering offers a combined BS/Master program to qualified undergraduate students seeking MS or ME degrees. In this program, qualified undergraduate students will be allowed to shorten the time required for their Master degree program by completing six (6) credits of graduate level courses in their final 2 semesters of their BS program or when they have achieved a 5EG classification. The combined BS/Master program will provide a fast track for qualified undergraduate students to obtain both their BS and Master degrees (e.g., MS or ME degrees), thereby allowing these students an earlier entrance to their professional careers. The program will provide incentive to encourage good undergraduate Civil Engineering students to pursue graduate education at the University of Florida. To qualify for this program, students from Civil Engineering must complete a Combined Bachelors/Master Degree Program application, attain an upper division GPA of 3.30 at the time of graduation with the B.S. degree, and must satisfy the graduate school and departmental graduate admission requirements. The courses (maximum of 6 credits) that would be double-counted in the BS and Master programs must be graded graduate level courses offered by the Department of Civil and Coastal Engineering (or by another acceptable Department). The student must achieve a grade of 'B' or better in order for the courses to be transferred into the graduate degree program.

Students should complete 6 hours of graduate course work appropriate to their intended graduate area of study (see the pool of most common acceptable courses identified under the various graduate specialties in the table below). These courses will satisfy 6 of the 15 advanced undergraduate elective credits. All special requirements of the electives as outlined in the undergraduate catalog (capstone design, design and laboratory experience) must also be satisfied.
