About the Program

Increase the impact of your time on campus with our integrated program in electrical engineering. Intended for highly motivated individuals, Case Western Reserve University’s program allows you to start on your graduate degree while still an undergraduate student. In just five years, you can earn both your bachelor’s and master’s in electrical engineering from the #1 engineering school in Ohio and among the best in the U.S.—and set yourself on the fast track toward an impressive career developing digital devices, software and systems that improve and affect everyday life.

What to Expect

Typically, Case Western Reserve undergraduate students apply to the integrated BS/MS program in spring of their junior year and, if accepted, determine up to nine credit hours of graduate-level courses that can count toward both degrees.

In addition to your undergraduate courses, you’ll work toward your master’s and complete either a research-oriented thesis or project track—whatever best suits your career interests and aspirations.

This “double counting” of credit hours means you’ll double the power of your tuition while gaining an advanced understanding of electrical engineering that will help you succeed on day one of your career, whether you enter industry or continue on in academia.

Bonus: Because you’re entering as an undergraduate student, you won’t need to take the GRE or other standardized test to be admitted to this graduate program.

“Being in this program has been a great talking point with employers. At my internship, they were very keen on the idea that I'll have a master's when I graduate.”
