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 ECE: This program allows students with a 3.6 overall GPA an opportunity to complete the master degree requirements in 5 years at Michigan.

3.4 Program in CSE: 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 the Master's program.

3.4 Program in ECE: This program allows qualified students (3.4 overall and major GPA) to receive special consideration when applying to the graduate program.
