Non-thesis MS ECE students can count up to 6 credits of VIP coursework toward Group II and Group III as follows:
- VIP can be taken for 1, 2, or 3 credits per semester. A zero-credit option is available for students who are supported by the instructor.
- The first 3 credits of 6000-level VIP courses can count as Group III (electives)
- The next 3 credits of 6000-level VIP courses can count as Group II OR Group III, and students must submit a publication-quality paper. All six credits must be with the same VIP team.
Note: A combined maximum of 6 VIP or special problems credits can count toward degree requirements. Additional VIP or special problems credits cannot be applied.
Please check with your ECE academic advisor if you have questions on how credits count.
