The 4+1 program lets you simultaneously earn a B.S. and M.S. Employers see great value in students with M.S. degrees because the students are able to develop greater depth of knowledge in specific areas of technology. If you have less than 180 credit units and a GPA of 3.0, you are eligible to apply.
Undergraduates from non-materials engineering majors are welcome to apply to the 4+1 program. All 4+1 students in our program, regardless of their undergraduate degree, would receive a B.S. in their undergrad major and a M.S. in engineering with a specialization in materials engineering.
