You can count graduate courses toward both degrees, cutting down your time to graduate by a semester of 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 earn a Bachelor / Master of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering. The bachelor’s program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission (EAC) of ABET. The Master’s degree offers a wide array of specialization areas, and is available as either a thesis or non-thesis program.
You can also earn a combined Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering / Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering.
Students who have completed a minimum of 90 hours towards their BS degree in Mechanical Engineering and have earned at least a 3.3 GPA on both overall and upper division courses may, upon recommendation from the faculty, apply for admission in the combined BSMS program.
FIU and the College of Engineering and Computing offer a variety of financial aid opportunities and scholarships to qualified students. The amounts and eligibility requirements of these awards vary depending on the type of award. Merit-based financial assistance is highly competitive, hence, students are encouraged to apply early.
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 six 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.
