 Civil Engineering Flowchart
 Environmental Engineering Flowchart

The Accelerated BS/MS Degree Pathway from FIU CEE is a popular option for those students who want to get a head start on their graduate studies prior to completing their undergraduate degrees. Students enrolled in the pathway program can count up to nine credit hours of CEE graduate courses toward both their engineering BS requirements and their MS degrees.

Eligible students are those pursuing BS degrees who are approaching their senior year with at least 3.3 GPA on both overall and upper division courses. Students interested in the Accelerated BS/MS degree pathway should consult with the Undergraduate Advisor on their eligibility to the program and meet with the Graduate Program Director to learn about the graduate program and coursework. That should be done before students complete the application form and submit it to the undergraduate advisor.
