You can count graduate courses toward both degrees, cutting down your time to graduate by a semester or more. You’ll pay less and be a more marketable professional. You’ll also be able to take courses and do research not normally available to undergraduates.
Which degrees can I combine?
You can complete a Bachelor of Science degree in Biomedical, Mechanical, or Electrical Engineering combined with the Master of Science Degree in Biomedical Engineering.
Students who have completed a minimum of 90 hours towards their BS degree in Biomedical Engineering and have earned at least a 3.3 grade point average with a combined GRE score of 1,000 (verbal ≥ 350, and quantitative ≥ 650) may apply for admission in the combined BSMS program.
FIU and the College of Engineering and Computing offer a variety of fellowships, assistantships, and scholarships to qualified domestic and international students. The amounts of these awards vary depending on the type of award, but they may provide full tuition and a monthly stipend. Students in this program are eligible for graduate assistantships upon admission.
The BSMS Program is continuous. You must meet the degree requirements for both the BS and the MS programs you choose. You may count up to nine hours of graduate courses as elective credits for both the BS and the MS degree. You will receive a BS degree and a MS degree on the same date, after requirements for both are completed.
