BME offers both a Masters of Science (MS) and Masters of Engineering (ME) degrees offered. Could you explain the difference? Also, why am I only offered the option of applying to the “Masters” program on the UF Application System?
The UF BME program does offer both a Masters of Science (MS) and a Masters of Engineering (ME) program. The MS program is the default program that all students are admitted to during the application process. Students can elect to switch to the ME degree upon enrollment. Switching to the ME requires documentation of graduation with an engineering degree from an ABET accredited school. There is no difference in the course requirements between an MS or ME.
