Accelerated BS/MS Program
This program allows outstanding undergraduates in biomedical engineering or an approved undergraduate discipline to begin the coursework for the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering during their senior year. Students are encouraged to begin planning to enter the Accelerated BS/MS program early in their undergraduate career, in consultation with an advisor in the Department of Biomedical Engineering.
Working with the undergraduate and graduate academic coordinators, undergraduates selected into this program begin a carefully tailored course of study that will allow them to complete their BS degree while they also begin the coursework toward their MS
To apply, students must have a minimum 3.25 grade point average, and must submit two reference letters and a copy of their transcript to the Biomedical Engineering department. Each applicant will complete an interview with the graduate academic coordinator in biomedical engineering.
Students must also apply to the Graduate School for the accelerated BS/MS program, which allows them to take graduate courses in biomedical engineering. To continue in the program past the BS, students must apply for full admission into the Graduate School and into the Biomedical Engineering department’s MS program.
Only in ABM programs, up to 9 hours of graduate course work may be applied to both the undergraduate and graduate programs. However, any graduate coursework will not apply to undergraduate GPA.
