Dual/Accelerated BS to MS in Biomedical Engineering
The dual/accelerated bachelor's to master's degree program is designed to offer outstanding biomedical engineering students the opportunity for advancing their careers by pursuing the bachelor's and master's degree in a parallel program and accelerated time frame.
Undergraduate students apply for the accelerated bachelor's to master's program through the WSU Graduate School application and admission process. Tentative graduate admission does not guarantee final admission to the graduate program and final graduate admission is contingent upon the student meeting all the admission requirements for the BME master's program at the time the bachelor's degree is awarded.
To be considered for admission to the accelerated bachelor's to master's degree program, the following must be satisfied:
- Completion of at least 90 credit hours in the BME program;
- A cumulative undergraduate GPA of at least 3.000; and
- A letter of recommendation from a member of the BME faculty who also will serve as the student's advisor in the accelerated program.
Dual Credit Courses
A maximum of 9 credit hours can be taken for graduate credit that may also be applied to the bachelor's degree. Courses eligible for joint credit include:
|BME 722||Introduction to Biorobotics||3|
|BME 735||Biocomputational Modeling||3|
|BME 738||Biomedical Imaging||3|
|BME 743||Mechanobiology of Cells and Tissue||3|
