    Students Learn Engineering While Building a Bicycle


The Department of Mechanical & Biomedical Engineering at Boise State’s College of Engineering prepares students for the rewards and challenges of a career in the multi-faceted field of mechanical and biomedical engineering. The curriculum was carefully developed with input from engineering professionals to provide a sound foundation in basic engineering while enabling students to specialize in diverse topics such as machine design, thermal systems, robotics, materials science and product and systems design.

IMPORTANT NOTICE! With the recent changes to University repeat policies, the MBE department reminds students of the following policy:

Students may register for a course a maximum of two (2) times. This includes audits, W’s, CW’s, letter grades, and pass/fail grades. Exempted from this policy are 1) courses dropped without a W and 2) courses that may be repeated for credit, such as studio art courses, private music lessons, and selected fitness activity courses.

We encourage all students to focus on their academic success and work with their instructors and advisors throughout their studies to avoid problems with repeats.

The B.S. program in mechanical engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org
