Cyber Systems Technology, Bachelor of Science (B.S.) & Technology Management Master of Science (M.S.) [Cyber Systems Tech Security Concentration] Accelerated 3+2 Dual Degree Program
Students accepted to the 3+2 Accelerated Dual Degree Program are able to complete their B.S. degree and M.S. degree within five calendar years because of the accelerated curriculum and because nine semester hours of graduate coursework will apply to both the undergraduate B.S. degree and the graduate M.S. degree. Only undergraduate students of proven academic ability will be considered for the program. Students should be aware that, in order to maintain their progress in the accelerated 3+2 program, careful coordination with their advisor is required. Depending upon undergraduate progress at the time of 3+2 admission, some summer-school classes may be needed.
The Cyber Systems Technology degree program has an articulation agreement for transfer of credit and cooperation with Bluegrass Community and Technical College’s Associate in Applied Science degree in Engineering Technology with Electrical Specialization.
Prerequisites may be required for some course selections.
Students must take at least one computer systems, networking, security, electronics, or telecommunications technology certification or license exam approved by the advisor.
Students must take a Cyber Systems Technology exit examination before graduation. Graduates must have an overall GPA of 2.25 in major requirements.
The Cyber Systems Technology program is accredited by the Association of Technology, Management, and Applied Engineering (ATMAE).
Students interested in this option must satisfy all of the following conditions:
- Junior or Senior standing
- Overall grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 at the time of admission to the 3+2 program
- Approval from department and Graduate School (see the form at http://gradschool.eku.edu/graduate-school-forms)
- Must maintain an overall undergraduate and graduate grade point average (GPA) of at least 3.0 to continue in the 3+2 program.
