This combined major from the Department of Mechanical and Industrial Engineering and Department of Bioengineering provides a rigorous curriculum for students willing to learn and integrate the foundations of mechanical engineering and bioengineering toward solving multidisciplinary problems arising at the intersection of these two engineering disciplines. The combined major weaves mechanics, materials, and thermofluids courses of mechanical engineering with a set of core and elective bioengineering courses from biomechanics, biostatistics, signals, and systems, to biomaterials, biomedical imaging, and design of biomedical devices and implants.
The Accelerated Master’s Degree PlusOne program allows current undergraduate students to accelerate the attainment of the master’s degree by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Current students apply to enroll in the PlusOne program. Students attain their bachelor’s degree followed by a PlusOne year to complete the master’s degree.
Students currently earning a BS in Mechanical Engineering and Design can select from the PlusOne pathways available for BS in Mechanical Engineering students.
