Sequential Undergraduate/Graduate Study (SUGS)

The ME SUGS Program makes it possible for students to pursue a five-year sequential Bachelors of Science in Engineering (BSE) and Master’s of Science in Engineering (MSE) by taking four years of BSE work and one year of MSE work. ME SUGS is only for ME undergraduate students enrolled at the UM Ann Arbor campus. Prior to applying to the SUGS Program, students should meet with a ME Undergraduate Advisor to discuss the application process and create a plan of study.

Applicants for the ME SUGS Program must have a 3.6 GPA or better to be considered for admission. ME SUGS students may pursue a coursework, research, or thesis track Master’s degree. The ME SUGS Program allows students to double-count a maximum of 9 credits and transfer a maximum of 3 credits from their Bachelor’s degree toward the 30-credit Master’s degree. This leaves 18-21 credits required to complete the Master’s degree, which can be accomplished in two semesters of graduate coursework. All SUGS students are required to complete two full terms as a graduate student and cannot delay their enrollment. Contact [email protected] to learn more or request a meeting.

Joint Institute – Sequential Undergraduate/Graduate Study (JI-SUGS)

This program is designed for students who receive an undergraduate ME BSE degree from the UM – Shanghai Jiao Tong University’s Joint Institute and wish to pursue a Mechanical Engineering Master’s degree at UM. Students that participate in the joint undergraduate program and receive two undergraduate degrees from UM and SJTU are not eligible for this program. Requirements for admission include: (1) a ME BSE degree from SJTU and (2) a minimum undergraduate grade point average of 3.6. The GRE is waived for JI-SUGS students, but the TOEFL is not. A maximum of 6 credits of approved coursework may be double counted from the undergraduate degree. Contact [email protected] to learn more or request a meeting.
