4+1 Aerospace Engineering BS/Masters Program

The Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering offers two B.S./Masters programs for students. There is a B.S. Mechanical Engineering/M.S. Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering program and a B.S. Mechanical Engineering/M.S. Energy Systems Engineering

B.S. Aerospace Engineering/M.S. Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering

The combined degree is for students to complete the Bachelor of Science in Aerospace Engineering and the Masters of Science in Mechanical & Aerospace Engineering degrees consecutively, with a goal of completing both degree requirements in five years. 6 credits of 500-level courses may be counted towards both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees. A block of transfer credits labeled as “transferred from SU undergraduate record” appears on the graduate record and applies credit hours toward the graduate degree, but is not calculated in the graduate GPA.

Students must be currently enrolled in the BS Aerospace Engineering program at Syracuse University, and should apply to the combined BS and MS program in the first semester of their third year of study. Admission is based upon academic performance. Students are accepted for graduate study after completion of the third year of study but are not fully matriculated as graduate students until all bachelor’s degree requirements have been met.

The Aerospace Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, https://www.abet.org, under the General Criteria and the Aerospace and Similarly Named Engineering Programs Program Criteria.
