Apply to an Accelerated Master's Program

Accelerated Master's Programs (AMP) at Illinois Institute of Technology allow currently enrolled undergraduate students to complete both a bachelor’s and master’s degree in as few as five years.

What Accelerated Master's Programs are Available?

For a complete list of the available AMP at Illinois Tech, please review the Graduate Bulletin. Students may also work with advisers to identify alternate bachelor's and master's degree pairings, pending the approval of the prospective graduate program and the student's undergraduate program.

Is This AMP Right for Me?
