Dual Degrees

Graduate Engineering Dual Degree Program Description

The Department of Bioengineering offers a number of dual degree programs. The dual MS degree program is intended for students already enrolled or accepted into another MS program in the University of Colorado system. Students wishing to combine the MS in Bioengineering with another master’s degree must: 1) be accepted and concurrently registered in both programs; dual MS cannot be earned sequentially because credit from a conferred Master's cannot be applied toward a second Master's, as per the Graduate School Rules, and 2) satisfy all requirements of both degree programs. Up to 15 credit hours of courses may be used to satisfy both programs. However, each program will determine which courses count on a case-by-case basis. The dual MD/MS degree program is offered in partnership with the University of Colorado School of Medicine and is available to current CU medical students only. The MS/MBA program is offered in partnership with the CU Denver Business School. The MD/PhD program is for students already enrolled or accepted into the Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) in the CU School of Medicine. Degree completion in 7-8 years with highly individualized training pathway and multidisciplinary research dissertation.
