The BS/MS program in MAE is a contiguous Bachelor’s/Master’s Degree program for Undergraduate Students in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at UC San Diego who have maintained a strong academic record in both major and cumulative course work. The program is only open to Undergraduate Students in the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department at UC San Diego.
Acceptance into the BS/MS program permits Students to transition directly to the MAE Master’s program following receipt of an MAE Bachelor’s degree. Students admitted to the program are admitted by default to the Plan II MC81 - Mechanical Engineering 'Core Program' Students may choose between the Thesis (Plan I) or the Comprehensive Examination (Plan II) tracks for all other programs (ex: MC75 - Aerospace Engineering or MC78 - Applied Ocean Science etc.) to complete the MS degree but this requires approval by the MAE Faculty 'Lead Instructor' of the new Major Code a Student wants to transfer into. This is not guranteed (reach out to email@example.com with questions)
The Department does not provide funding for MS Students, but they are eligible for financial support including campus-wide fellowships and Academic Student Employment positions.
Undergraduate Students in the UCSD Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department who are enrolled in the Bachelor’s program, and who have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or above are eligible to apply. Applicants should note that eligibility does not necessarily guarantee acceptance into the program. Once admitted to the BS/MS program, Students must maintain a 3.0 cumulative GPA through conferral of the Bachelor’s degree. Students not satisfying these requirements may be re-evaluated for continuation in the program. Students must have completed at least 3 quarters in residence at UCSD.
