▼   Requirements for a Degree

To become a candidate for a Bachelor of Science degree in one of the five major disciplines within the College of Engineering, the student must satisfy the general requirements of the University, and must have satisfactorily completed the program of instruction specified by the major department. In addition to these requirements, the Engineering student must have at least a GPA of 2.00 or C-level competency in all subjects taken in the student's major department at the University of South Alabama.

A transfer student must complete at least 32 hours of approved courses with at least 16 hours in the upper level of the student's major department at the University of South Alabama.

Students are required to take the Fundamentals of Engineering examination (FE examination) of Alabama or another state on the last examination date prior to their anticipated date of graduation (though a pass is not required).

▼   Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s (ABM) Program

The ABM program allows full-time undergraduate students within two semesters of BSEE or BSCpE 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 their MSEE degree at an accelerated pace. Students registered for the ABM program may use up to six credit hours of graduate course work towards both the BSEE/BSCpE and MSEE degrees. This means that after earning the BSEE or BSCpE degree the course load for the MSEE degree is reduced by six credit hours. More information is available here.
