2017 Spring Advising series

All ECE students:

 

 


Accelerated Master of Science MS

The Michigan Tech Graduate School is offering a limited number of Graduate Academic Excellence Awards (GAEA) which provide a one-time payment of $4500 in tuition support for the first semester of study in the Accelerated MS programs.  Well-qualified students will be nominated for the GAEA by the ECE Department, with academic merit being the sole criterion.   No separate application is required. Meet with Dr. Michael Roggemann, EERC 503, and bring a copy of your transcript.

ECE: Accelerated Master of Science degree program.

Undergraduate electrical engineers and computer engineers are allowed to count up to six credit hours toward both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees in the ECE Department, and could potentially finish their master’s degree in one academic year (two semesters). The credits must be at least 4000 level, lecture-based coursework. (Excludes UG research, individual project, enterprise and senior design credits)

ECE Accelerated Master’s preparation checklist  How to get started.

Undergraduate students can apply, using the standard Graduate School application, as early as their junior year and may start taking graduate level courses during their senior year. ECE Applicants must maintain an undergraduate minimum cumulative GPA of 3.25 to apply and to remain in the program.

Graduate School accelerated masters information.

 

Take an extra course(s) for a future grad program while you’re an undergrad:

Senior Rule: Students may take graduate program courses under the Senior Rule if they have time for an extra course in senior year. This designates a course as “GR”, graduate level, making the course available for possible use in a future graduate degree program. Courses taken under Senior Rule may NOT apply to the undergraduate degree. Senior Rule credits could be transferred and considered by graduate programs outside MTU-ECE. Senior Rule credits are on your graduate transcript, and not on your undergraduate transcript.


approved Enterprise Modules/ 3 semester option

List of Enterprise Modules (classes) which are approved for the 3-semester enterprise for design option, in place of ENT3950.  Be sure to check the schedule of classes for offerings and plan in advance.  Begin the 3-semester enterprise sequence in ENT3960, Project Work IV.

Fall approved modules:

  • ENT3959   Six Sigma I
  • ENT2961   Teaming in Enterprise
  • ENT3982   Continuous Improvement Using Lean Principles

Spring approved modules:

  • ENT3963   Technology and Commercialization
  • ENT3966   Design for Manufacturing
  • ENT3967   Six Sigma II
  • ENT4951   Business Plans and Budgeting
  • ENT3971   Seven Habits of Highly Effective People
  • ENT2962   Communication Contexts

The 3 – semester enterprise project work option is ENT3960, ENT4950, and ENT4960 plus one Approved Enterprise Module from above list.  ENT3950 does not apply.


Intramural sports PE credit

Students can sign up for the Intramural class to get PE credit for it. PE0425.
1) You need to be a sophomore or higher to sign-up for it. We don’t accept freshmen in the course.
2) Once you’re in the class you’ll need to participate in 14 intramural games/activities through out the track you are sign up for.  This mean you’ll need to participate in at lease 3 or more different intramural sports during the track.
Here is an example of one might do to pass the intramural course:
– play 3 flag football games
– play 3 softball games
– play 3 sand volleyball games
– play 3 soccer games
– participate in 2 disc golf tournaments
