This accelerated program works because most students begin graduate requirements during their senior year in the department. Students are admitted after finishing 300-level requirements so they can plan their CSE senior and graduate requirements as a coherent two-year plan.The program was created with industry-bound students in mind. A master's degree is often the most cost-effective industry degree: the relatively short amount of time spent on the master's (and relatively low expense of one year's tuition) can significantly boost compensation and job opportunities. Both starting salary and long-term prospects are improved with an advanced degree. For students headed to industry, we expect this opportunity to be efficient and effective.
While BS/MS coursework, research options, and faculty connections are valuable for all students, this program may not be necessary for Ph.D.-bound students. Strong students intent on pursuing a Ph.D. should consider applying directly to Ph.D. programs. However, if you are uncertain about your plans, advisors and faculty welcome the opportunity to discuss options with you.
Particular strengths include:
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
