LAKERS TOGETHER: Grand Valley is preparing for successful learning experiences when classes resume on Aug. 31. Learn more about the plan for fall in this handbook.
Grand Valley State University combined degree programs offer students the opportunity to complete both an undergraduate and graduate degree, meeting their unique personal, academic, and career goals. Pursuing a combined degree program can reduce the cost and total time required to complete both a bachelor's and a master's degree.
Students are prepared for engineering careers and leadership roles by
way of B.S.E. and M.S.E. degree programs that integrate academic
studies with hands-on learning and paid professional co-op experiences
in engineering companies.
The combined program allows the use of two courses from the graduate program to fulfill the requirements for two undergraduate electives, while applying these courses to the graduate program. Similarly, the combined program utilizes an integrated culminating experience that fulfills the requirements of both the B.S.E. and M.S.E. programs. Through this articulation, the student completes both programs through a reduction of 9 to 11 credits.
The study plans for the combined B.S.E./M.S.E. program are very aggressive and academically demanding. Undergraduate students maintaining a GPA of 3.3 through their junior year are encouraged to apply for the program. For more information, please contact the graduate program director.
The following are just a few career options for engineers:
The M.S.E. in Engineering at GVSU will develop the skills you need to land the job you want. Whether the skills are advanced or general, you will build a resume of qualifications that are sure to attract employers. The following skills correlate with those pulled from actual job postings in the engineering field.
