Sequential Undergraduate/Graduate Study (SUGS)

BSE/MSE in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering

This program permits outstanding naval architecture and marine engineering students to receive the B.S.E. and M.S.E. degrees. The student benefits from the continuity of study and the inefficiencies of transferring from an undergraduate to a graduate program are eliminated. The program allows students with a 3.2 or better GPA, to apply early in the first semester of their senior year (once 85 credit hours have been completed), for a sequential undergraduate/graduate program, which allows them to double count up to nine credits and transfer up to six credits of technical or free electives. In consultation with their advisor, students select technical electives that will be relevant to the master’s program of study. Students are admitted using the normal department graduate admission process, with the admission standards required for expected successful completion of the program. Please contact the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering Department for more complete program information.
