This accelerated combined degree program provides academically talented students an opportunity to complete a bachelor’s and a master’s degree in a shorter period of time. The BS/MS degree allows you to ‘double-count’ graduate courses toward both degrees, thus reducing the time it would normally take to graduate by a semester or more. The combined-degree program reduces the cost of both degrees and enhances your marketability for career advancement. By enrolling in a combined bachelor’s and master’s program you can earn your master’s degree earlier while participating in research and taking courses not usually available to undergraduates.
With this accelerated program, students may obtain a Bachelor of Science degree in Civil or Environmental Engineering combined with any of the following Master Degrees:
- Master of Science in Civil Engineering
- Master of Science in Environmental Engineering
- Master of Science in Environmental and Urban Systems
Students who have completed a minimum of 90 hours towards their BS degree in Civil or Environmental Engineering and have earned at least a 3.3 GPA on both overall and upper division courses may, upon recommendation from three faculty members, apply for admission in the combined BS/MS program.
Scholarships, Fellowships & Assistantships
FIU and the College of Engineering and Computing offer a variety of fellowships, assistantships, and scholarships to qualified domestic and international students. The amounts of these awards vary depending on the type of award, but they may provide full tuition and a monthly stipend.
The BS/MS Program has been designed to be a continuous program. Student must meet the degree requirements for both the BS and the MS programs of their choice. Students enrolled in the program may count up to 9 hours of graduate courses as elective credits for both the BS and the MS degree. Students will receive a BS degree and a MS degree on the same date, after requirements for both are completed.
