4+1: BSE+Master's Degree Program

Complete a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in 5 years

Leading employers recognize the value of master's-level education. Our Pratt 4+1 Program provides a way for engineering students to complete a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in as little as five years total.

The 4+1 option is available in every Pratt School of Engineering master's degree program, including those leading to a Master of Science (MS), Master of Engineering (MEng) and Master of Engineering Management (MEM).
