Fast Track to a Master's Degree

The Fast Track Bachelor’s + Master’s Degree Program, offers engineering students the opportunity to begin their graduate studies during their undergraduate years, accelerating the process of getting their master’s degree. Students earn their bachelor’s degree first and then go on to earn their master’s with as few as eight additional classes, saving time and money. With careful planning, it is possible to finish both degrees from St. Thomas in as few as five years for both degrees. Degree options exist for engineering students both from the graduate engineering and graduate software programs.

The St. Thomas School of Engineering offers many master's degrees as well as a variety of graduate certificates designed to meet the diverse needs of industry and working professionals. Undergraduate students are encouraged to talk with their advisers about the five-year master's track programs available including:

  • Electrical Engineering
  • Manufacturing Engineering
  • Mechanical Engineering
  • Software Engineering
  • Systems Engineering
  • Data Science
  • Information Technology
  • Regulatory Science
  • Software Management
  • Technology Management

Information sessions on these graduate programs are hosted regularly through the Graduate Engineering and Graduate Programs in Software departments. St. Thomas students are eligible for a full waiver of the master's programs application fee.
