Civil and Architectural Engineering Quick Start, B.S./M.S.


MSCE Quick Start Program

The MSCE Quick Start program in Civil and Architectural Engineering (CAE) is designed to present highly qualified UW students with the opportunity to begin graduate study while they complete their bachelor of science (B.S.) degree in civil engineering or architectural engineering. These students must apply for admission to the Quick Start program no later then the second semester of their junior year.

This program allows for early planning of the graduate portion of a student’s education and provides more flexibility in the number of required courses and the order in which they are taken. The more efficient and betterplanned use of time should result in reduction of the time required for obtaining the master of science in civil engineering (MSCE) degree. Students who enter the Quick Start program must accept the primary responsibility for actively planning their programs of study to assure timely completion of their coursework and research programs.

The Quick Start program contains two essential elements:

Qualified students may receive provisional admission to the civil engineering graduate program prior to completing the normal application process. This provisional admission will permit students to make their long-term educational plans earlier in their studies, thus providing enhanced opportunities for course selection and involvement in research.

Quick Start students are not required to submit GRE.

Students in the program may apply up to six credit hours of 4000 or 5000-level courses toward both the B.S. and M.S. degree programs. By completing successfully up to six credit hours of graduate classes during their senior year, these students will have demonstrated their ability to do graduate-level coursework as undergraduates, easing their transition to the civil engineering graduate program.

Quick Start applicants are not required to submit GRE scores , but are required to submit a complete application form. For additional information and an application form, please contact the CAE graduate program coordinator at (307) 766-2390 or stop by 3074 Engineering Building.
