Combined BS-MS

UW ECE offers a combined BS-MS program for ambitious undergraduates who plan to pursue graduate work. The combined BS-MS is a highly competitive and prestigious program that begins with both nomination letters submitted by faculty and a nomination packet submitted by the student. Students accepted into the program seamlessly begin graduate studies in the daytime MSEE program the autumn quarter following completion of their bachelor’s degree.


UW ECE is the top electrical engineering department in the region and the #21 best graduate school for 2019, as ranked by U.S. News & World Report. Working under the instruction of world-renowned researchers and immersed in the department’s entrepreneurial environment, students are prepared for advanced positions in industry or graduate work at the Ph.D. level.


UW ECE welcomes applications to the combined BS-MS program from highly-qualified juniors from select colleges. Students generally must have a minimum 3.7 GPA.


Students enrolled in the BS-MS combined program complete the same coursework and requirements as the BSEE and MSEE programs.
