University rank #801 (QS) , FL,
The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers a dual-degree program that culminates with students receiving both Bachelor of Science and Master of Science (BS/MS) in Biomedical Engineering concurrently.

About

This program is available only to qualified students enrolled in the undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Miami. This program is intended to give qualified Biomedical Engineering students the opportunity to acquire both a baccalaureate degree (BSBE) and a Master of Science (MSBE) degree in five years rather than the 4 plus 2 years (approximately) that is traditionally expected. The two degrees are awarded simultaneously when the combined requirements have been met for both degrees.

The dual BS/MS program is available only to qualified undergraduate students enrolled in the Department of Biomedical Engineering, in any of the four Concentrations (Electrical, Mechanical, Biomaterials and Tissue, PreMed). Typically, students must have undergraduate student status and a cumulative G.P.A. of at least 3.0 at the time of application.
