Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s (ABM) Degree

The Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s Degree Program is intended for the current undergraduate students in the Department of Manufacturing Engineering at the Georgia Southern University. It will produce a pathway to earn both a Bachelor’s and a Master’s Degree within five years. 

In accordance with SACSCOC requirements, students admitted to the MSAE-ABM may use up to 9 credit hours of graduate-level courses offered in the MSAE curriculum in meeting the requirements of both the BSMfgE and MSAE degree programs. SACSCOC requires 150 unique credit hours between the two programs. Because the MSAE-ABM program contains the required 150 unique hours between BSMfgE and MSAE degree programs, MSAE-ABM students may share a maximum of 9 credit hours of graduate-level courses (5000G) in satisfying the requirements of both degree programs.

ABM Admission and Requirements

Regular Admission

For regular admission to the Accelerated Bachelor’s to Master’s of Science in Applied Engineering (ABM-MSAE) degree program, the applicant must:

  • Be enrolled in the undergraduate manufacturing engineering program (BS-MFGE) in the Department of Manufacturing Engineering at the Georgia Southern University.
  • Have completed at least 25 credit hours of undergraduate coursework in MFGE discipline including MFGE   2531, MFGE   2142, MFGE   2533, MFGE   2239, and MFGE   2534.
  • Have a 3.0 or higher Georgia Southern Institutional GPA.
  • ABM programs do not allow provisional admission. ABM programs are designed for students who have demonstrated a high level of undergraduate academic performance that validates their ability to be a successful graduate student. Students who do not meet the minimum requirements for regular admission may be granted admission to the program upon approval of an admissions committee consisting of at least the Department Chair and the Graduate Program director.

ABM Degree Requirements: 30 Credit Hours (Thesis and Non-Thesis)

  1. A student in the ABM program will be allowed to use up to 9 credits MFGE 5000G level courses offered within the Manufacturing Engineering program in meeting the requirements of both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree.
  2. Maintain a cumulative graduate GPA of 3.0 (grade of “B” or better) in their graduate degree course work (including the 9 credits of graduate course work shared with the undergraduate degree).
  3. Meet all requirements for both the BS-MFGE and M.S.A.E. degrees.
  4. An undergraduate student enrolled in graduate classes is limited to 6 credit hours of graduate coursework per semester.
  5. A minimum of 50% of courses for the Master of Science in Applied Engineering degree must be taken at or above the 6000 level.
