Accelerated Master of Engineering Pathway

NNU undergraduate students wishing to begin coursework toward a Master of Science degree the final year of their bachelor's degree program have the following options. NNU in collaboration with Boise State University (BSU), works with its students to apply for an accelerated master's degree program at BSU. This accelerated program gives bachelor’s degree students a “fast-track” option to pursue their Master of Science degree at BSU. Upon successful completion of this 4+1 model, the student will have earned a Bachelor of Science degree from NNU and the potential of completing BSU's Master of Science (MS) in Computer Science, in Materials Science and Engineering, in Mechanical Engineering, in Electrical and Computer Engineering, or in Electrical and Computer Engineering with a semiconductor emphasis.

Prior to their final year in their bachelor's program, NNU students must apply by April 30 for admission to BSU's Accelerated Master of Science program. Students must also apply to NNU's graduate program as a non-degree seeking student.

Students who have been accepted into the BSU program will be able to apply two NNU graduate courses to the BSU Master of Science degree as well as their NNU Bachelor of Science degree. Students admitted into NNU's graduate program may choose to take additional 4000-level courses at the 5000-level.
