Following completion of the MBA program, students will transition directly into the M.Eng. program via Letter of Intent. The M.Eng BMEN program can typically be completed in 1.5 years, but is flexible depending on previous degrees, biomedical engineering background, and the length of the mandatory internship.

As a student approaches the end of their MBA program, they should reach out to the BME Graduate Academic Advisor listed below to discuss the transition plan from MBA to M.Eng. BMEN.


All incoming MBA students, including M.Eng./MBA students are automatically considered for scholarship support during the MBA portion of the program.

BMEN students through this program, funding availability in biomedical engineering may be available through TA and grader positions.
