The College of Engineering offers students currently enrolled in a Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree program at The University of Toledo an opportunity to begin work toward a Master of Science in Engineering degree. This option offers talented students who intend to continue their education beyond the B.S. a unique opportunity to begin their graduate research activities at an earlier stage in their career and proceed into the graduate programs in a timely manner.
Up to nine semester credit hours of graduate-level technical elective or required courses may be applied toward the B.S. degree in lieu of selected undergraduate elective courses, subject to specific departmental restrictions. Only 5000-level or higher engineering courses taken at The University of Toledo may be applied toward this option. In addition, an approved M.S. plan of study must be filed indicating those courses that will be accepted in lieu of specific B.S. course requirements. Application and admission requirements are described in the graduate section of the catalog.
Normally, the Bachelor of Science in Engineering degree programs (with co-op) require five years and the Master of Science in Engineering degree programs require an additional two years. It is anticipated that by participating in this option, a total of six years will be required for the completion of both degrees.
