4+1 Bachelor of Electrical Engineering with MS in Data Science

The Department offers a 4+1 Bachelor of Electrical Engineering/MS that allows students to complete both the Bachelor’s degree in any undergraduate major administered by the Department and the interdisciplinary Master of Science degree in Data Science in a total of five years of full-time study. The application to this option is reviewed by the executive committee of the MSDS program.  All requirements of both degree programs must be satisfied. Up to six credits of graduate coursework in Electrical and Computer Engineering may be applied toward satisfying the requirements of both degrees.

Students applying to the 4+1 Bachelor of Electrical Engineering/MS program must be in their junior year of study at the University of Delaware, enrolled in the Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree program administered by the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, and must have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2, a GPA of at least 3.4 in their major. The application process requires two letters of recommendation, which must be written by University of Delaware faculty, and academic transcripts. The expected background requirements for the MSDS program must be completed and the UD Bachelor’s degree must be awarded before a student can register in the +1 year of the 4+1 program.
