Compliance with GFC Doc.878

This concentration meets the requirements of GFC Doc. 878. Students who wish to receive multiple concentrations within the MS in Engineering must complete 15 credits from the approved list of courses for each concentration.

Compelling reasons

Due to diverse technical areas in engineering and common practice by most engineering institutions in the US, M.S. degree in engineering lists the area of concentration in the student’s academic records. This describes the student’s background better and enhances employment opportunities for the student. It also aids the department in tracking graduate students. The above-described plan aligns the BME program with other engineering concentrations of the College of Engineering & Applied Science.
