Accelerated Masters

Industrial Management and Applied Engineering (IMAE) students with senior standing and a GPA of 3.5 are eligible for the Accelerated Masters program. Students pursuing their Master’s degree in Quality Engineering and Management (QEM) after completing their Bachelor’s degree in IMAE will be able to apply up to 9 hours of approved IMAE coursework towards the QEM degree. This will allow the student to complete the degree requirements in about a year. Students must complete a Graduate School application and work with the graduate advisor on a program of study. Nine credit hours will be allowed to double count toward the undergraduate degree and the Master’s degree. The accelerated master’s program allows students who have advanced degree aspirations the ability to save money by completing their studies quicker and to enter the job market sooner.

The Quality Engineering and Management accelerated program with the non-thesis option requires satisfactory completion of twelve hours in core courses: QEM 510, QEM 525, QEM 530 and QEM 540 and eighteen hours of elective graduate credit, which may include nine IMAE credit hours at the 400-level taken as an undergraduate.

The Quality Engineering and Management accelerated program with the thesis option requires satisfactory completion of twelve hours in core courses: QEM 510, QEM 525, QEM 530, and QEM 540, six hours of thesis and six hours of elective graduate credit, which may include IMAE credit hours at the 400-level taken as an undergraduate.
