Notes


IMPORTANT NOTES: Students who first enroll in Summer 2011 or later must meet the requirements of the K-State 8 General Education Program.

Students who began their programs of study in earlier terms under the University General Education (UGE) program may complete their degrees with UGE requirements or may choose to move to the K-State 8. Students should check with their academic advisors to determine which choice would be better. To switch, students must consult with their academic advisors.

Students enrolled prior to Summer 2011: must complete the university general education requirements specified by the College of Engineering.

*Humanities and Social Science (H/SS) Electives are to be selected from the official College of Engineering H/SS list.

**Complementary Electives are to be selected from the current approved department list.

***Science Electives are to be selected from the current approved department list.

****Engineering Electives are to be selected from the current approved department list.

Combined BS-MS Requirements


 Effective Fall 2011

The Master of Science in Architectural Engineering is offered through the Architectural Engineering and Construction Science  graduate program. The minimum requirement for course work is 30 semester hours of graduate credit with options as specified in this catalog and required undergraduate work in an engineering program accredited by the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology (ABET) and subject to the approval of the department. Depending on the selected degree options a student has a significant range of elective courses from which to choose with the approval of the student’s graduate committee. The program is structured to permit the student, by diligent work, to complete the M.S. requirement in one calendar year. Substitution for one or more of the specified courses may be made if the department judges that equivalent study has been successfully completed.

A combination B.S. and M.S. degree program is offered to undergraduates in Architectural Engineering (ARE) at Kansas State University. This professional M.S. degree challenges top students in Architectural Engineering with research experiences, faculty mentoring and advanced course work. The program allows the student an opportunity to specialize in an emphasis area of systems engineering applied to building design and analysis.

The combined B.S./M.S. program builds on the broad-base, generalist emphasis of the B.S. ARE program and allows top students to specialize with additional research experiences, faculty mentoring and advanced course work. Students and faculty are matched by interest and capability to determine an emphasis area, program of study, and graduate committee. Current emphasis areas include: mechanical systems, electrical power distribution, illumination and building structural design.

This program allows Architectural Engineering students meeting the following requirements to be admitted to the graduate school:

  • Completed 135 or more credit hours of the Architectural Engineering Curriculum.
  • Obtained a cumulative grade point average of 3.25 or higher in the Architectural Engineering Curriculum and in the two years prior to entry into the combined MS/BS program.
  • Accepted by the Department of Architectural Engineering Graduate Faculty.
  • Met all entrance requirements of the graduate school with the exception of completing a B.S. degree (1.B. of the graduate handbook).

This program allows accepted students to:

  • Reduce their undergraduate program by 15 credit hours and replace these hours with 15 credits towards the requirements of the M.S. degree.
  • All of the requirements of the graduate school will be met or exceeded.
  • The undergraduate program will be reduced by 3 credits of free electives and 12 credits of complementary electives.

Total Credit Hours Required for Graduation for BS-MS (173)


 Bachelor of Science in Architectural Engineering credit hours (of which the 15 credit hours would be graduate credit hours) + 15 semester hours of additional graduate credits.
