The ABM program allows full-time undergraduate students within two semesters of BSChE graduation at USA, who have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 or better at USA (with at least 30 credit hours taken at USA), to earn MSChE degrees at an accelerated pace. Students registered for the ABM program may use up to six credit hours of graduate course work towards both the BSChE and MSChE degrees. This means that after earning the BSChE degree the course load for the MSChE degree is reduced by six credit hours. More information is available here.
