Electrical and Computer Engineering Undergraduate Degrees
The Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering offers a curriculum leading to a bachelor of science degree in computer engineering. The computer engineering curriculum provides a solid foundation in electrical engineering fundamentals, as well as a comprehensive study of computer software and hardware systems. Through an ample elective program, students can customize their studies to their individual interests, emphasizing hardware engineering, software engineering, or intelligent systems.
Program is accredited by the Computer Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.

1. Program Eligibility
The EECE Department offers a Five-Year B.S./M.S. Program where eligible students may obtain
both a Bachelor’s degree and a M.S.EE degree in five years. Students with a GPA of 3.5 or better
in their Mathematics, Science and Engineering courses are eligible to apply to this program in
their junior year. This program is available to undergraduate students in EECE or Physics.
Students wishing to participate in the Five-Year Program must apply and be admitted to the
program before their senior year, using the same procedures outlined in Section V.A, with the
exception that GRE test scores are not required. Students need to fill out an Application for
Graduate Admission and Financial Aid form (available from the Graduate School) and follow the
guidelines in both the Marquette Graduate Bulletin and this document for admission to the
program. On the application, in the section "Graduate School Plans", students should check "B.S.
Students in the program may take graduate courses in their junior or senior undergraduate year
(up to 12 credits total, minimum grade of B required). Up to nine graduate credits count toward
both degrees. Remaining courses and credits toward the M.S. degree are completed during the
fifth year. For students following Plan A (Thesis Option), work on the thesis research should
begin during the summer between the junior and senior undergraduate years.
Undergraduate students wishing to take courses for graduate credit must fill out a Permission to
Enroll in a Graduate Course form, available from the Graduate School. This is done for both
5000-level and 6000-level courses. Students in the Five-Year Program wishing to apply course(s)
toward both degrees must check the box "5 year program" in the "Additional Information" section
of the form. Permission forms for courses applied only to the M.S. degree should check the box "I
do not intend to use this course to satisfy undergraduate requirements". For 5000-level courses,
students must also fill out a “Graduate Credits Requested for Undergraduate Course” form.
Once the undergraduate degree is completed, students must fill out a Master’s Degree Transfer of Credit Request form to formally transfer the coursework taken into their M.S. program. All
coursework taken as an undergraduate must meet university transfer guidelines before it can be
used toward the Master’s degree, including a maximum of 12 transfer credits and a minimum
grade of B in all courses.
Students having interest in this program should consult with the DGS and their advisor.
*There is a new undergraduate bulletin edition for each academic year. The Marquette University bulletins outline current policies for all students and curricular requirements for those students entering Marquette in a given academic year. Refer to the section on how to use the bulletin for more information.
