Combined BS/MS in Biomedical Engineering

The combined BS/MS degree program allows qualified students to apply for graduate admissions to pursue both a bachelor’s degree in Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) and a master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering (BME) concurrently. Admitted students begin MS degree course work while working towards their BS degree and double-count up to 12 credit hours of specific graduate courses for both their undergraduate and graduate degree requirements. The MSE degree is designed to be completed within two to three semesters after completing the BS requirements.
