The 3+1+1 Program will provide FCU students the opportunity to complete their Bachelor's degree from FCU at UC, and qualify to continue with one-year Master of Engineering degree at UC. The 3+1+1 program will be composed of 3 stages.
Stage 1: 3 years at FCU undergraduate program.
Stage 2: 1 year at UC completing undergraduate courses or senior project (Bachelor's degree from FCU).
Stage 3: 1 year in the UC graduate program (Master of Engineering degree from UC).
Students, who successfully complete Stage 1 at FCU, will be recommended for admission to Stage 2 at UC. Upon acceptance into the UC program and successful completion of Stage 2, students will be awarded a Bachelor's degree from FCU and, if qualified, admitted to a graduate program at UC.
UC's Master of Engineering degree requires a minimum of 30 credit hours of course work (including capstone); a thesis is not required for the degree. Program is designed to provide students with advanced knowledge and experience in their fields of interest along with courses covering new developments in the respective disciplines. For the acceptance to the Master's program at UC, students must have completed the undergraduate degree with a cumulative GPA no less than 8.0 on a scale of 10 or 3.0 on the scale of 4.
