Plus One Bioengineering

PlusOne with MS in Bioengineering

PlusOne with MS in Bioengineering


Accelerated Master’s degrees allow students to accelerate the attainment of the master’s degree by applying graduate credits taken as an undergraduate toward both the undergraduate and graduate degrees. Current students apply to enroll in the Accelerated Master’s PlusOne Program.

With the PlusOne program, students attain their bachelor’s degree followed by a PlusOne year to complete the master’s degree.

Below are the eligible undergraduate majors available to pursue a PlusOne pathway with a master’s degree in Bioengineering. Also, review the Curriculum Guides and the Accelerated Master’s links for further details, including program policies and procedures, as well as how to Apply.
