EECS Graduate School Options for U-M EECS Undergraduate Students

There are three options available to U-M EECS undergraduate students wishing to apply for graduate study:
Regular Admission to Rackham Graduate School: For an EECS undergraduate, typically with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.6, who seeks a PhD degree. (PhD students normally earn a Master's degree in the course of their PhD studies.)

SGUS Program In CSE: This Sequential Graduate/Undergraduate Study (SGUS) program allows students to complete requirements for both degrees in five (to five and a half) years. Many students who enroll in this program plan to enter industry but seek additional intellectual depth beyond the bachelor’s degree. Students who plan to pursue a PhD should apply directly to the CSE PhD program

SGUS Program in EE and EE:Systems (for EE, CE or CS students entering the EE or EE:Systems Graduate Program)
The EECS SGUS program was created to offer our best students with a minimum GPA of 3.6 an opportunity to complete the Master’s requirements as part of a seamless program of five years at Michigan. This is done by allowing students to “double count” up to eight hours of credit in graduate level classes toward both Bachelor’s and Master’s requirements. Many students who enroll in this program plan to enter industry but seek additional intellectual depth beyond the bachelor’s degree. Students who plan to pursue a PhD should apply directly to the EE PhD program or EE:Systems PhD program.

3.4 Program: The 3.4 Program is designed to make it easy for current EECS seniors with cumulative and major GPA's of at least 3.4 to apply to continue their studies in an EECS Master's program. (Students in the Master's program have the option to apply for the PhD program.)
