University Senate Proposed: Sept. 21, 2007
RESOLUTION TO ESTABLISH A PROGRAM LEADING TO THE COMBINED BS/MS IN ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING
WHEREAS students entering the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences as undergraduates will likely need to pursue masters degrees to fulfill their professional employment goals, and
WHEREAS undergraduates demonstrating excellence in the BS program in Electrical Engineering will have the opportunity to apply for admission to the combined program and so the best students will be less likely to go elsewhere for their MS degree, and
WHEREAS the proposal has the approval of the Executive Committee of the School of Engineering and Applied Sciences, and the Education Committee of the University Senate has reviewed and recommends its approval;
THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the Senate establish the combined BS/MS program in Electrical Engineering, with the proviso that the Education Committee will review the program in five years, and
BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the Senate forward this resolution to the Trustees for appropriate action.
