The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a "3 plus 2" program for undergraduate
students who are interested in eventually earning a master's degree in Biomedical
Engineering. The program is targeted towards students who are currently pursuing a
B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering,
Physics, or other appropriate degrees.
Students who participate in this program will be able to earn both the BS and the
MS degrees in five years. Students with advanced placement credits may require less
time. Most students will receive a paying job in a laboratory once accepted into the
program. All students, once they reach senior status (within two semesters of graduation
with their bachelor's degree) will become eligible for graduate assistantships (GA).
The typical GA includes tuition-and-fees scholarship and a monthly salary. Students
remain in GA status throughout their senior year and their graduate year(s).
