3+1 BS/MSE PROGRAMS
The 3+1 BS/MSE degree program is intended for highly motivated biomedical engineering students who wish to pursue advanced studies. Students will complete both degrees by the end of their fourth year, with the opportunity to pursue an additional research thesis during an optional fifth year.
how to apply
You must indicate BME as your first-choice major on your application for undergraduate admission. No separate application is required. Students are admitted specifically into the BME major based on evaluation of credentials and space available. Students can be admitted to Hopkins without being admitted to the BME major.
