Integrated Bachelor/Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering

Program Coordinator: Barbara Muller-Borer (234 Slay Hall; 252-744-2546;

This program will be initiated while undergraduates are completing the BS in engineering degree and is intended for outstanding engineering undergraduates who have worked with a thesis advisor during their undergraduate studies. Graduate student course work will begin in the students’ fourth year of undergraduate study and be completed with one academic year of study beyond the bachelor’s degree. It is anticipated that a full year of study beyond completion of undergraduate engineering requirements will be required to complete this program. Engineering students may apply to the program after completion of a minimum of 80 eligible undergraduate credit hours, and can enter the program after completion of a minimum of 95 eligible undergraduate credit hours (a minimum of 128 credit hours is required for the bachelor of science in engineering degree). The minimum GPA at the time of admission and entry to the program is 3.5.


Students applying to the integrated bachelor/master of science in biomedical engineering program will go through the regular graduate application process with the following exceptions:

• On the online graduate application form students will indicate that they are applying to an “Integrated program”.

• A supplemental form will be completed with a faculty advisor listing the graduate courses to be counted towards both degrees, the intended date of completion of the undergraduate degree requirements, and the intended semester of assistantship eligibility.

• Personal statement should address applicant’s specific interest in biomedical graduate education and the integrated program.
