Combined BS/MS

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

Why UW EE?

UW EE is the top electrical engineering department in the region and the #19 best graduate school for 2017, 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 EE welcomes applications to the combined BS-MS program from highly-qualified juniors from select colleges. Students 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.
