Data Science and Engineering - ABM

Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Curriculum for Data Science and Engineering

The Accelerated Bachelor’s/Master’s Program (ABM) offers outstanding students in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics an opportunity to earn both the bachelor's and the master's degrees in less time and at less cost than usual. The ABM program allows these exceptional students to count up to nine credit hours toward both the bachelor's and master's degrees. The Bachelor of Science in Applied Mathematics - Applied Discrete Mathematics Option undergraduate major can lead to a Master of Science in Data Science and Engineering - Data Science track in the ABM track. Please see the Department of Mathematics and Statistics for additional information. 

Below is a chart of all the approved courses that can be taken in the ABM program and what course that replaces at the undergraduate level.
