Graduate Students

The Department of Mechanical & Biomedical Engineering (MBE) offers two distinct mechanical engineering graduate degree programs.  The program leading to the Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering (M.S. ME) is a thesis-based program designed to prepare students for research and development and further study at the doctoral level. The program leading to the Master of Engineering in Mechanical Engineering (M.Engr. ME) is a non-thesis program with a focus on professional development.


An applicant must satisfy the minimum admission requirements of the Graduate College and the Mechanical Engineering program. In addition, the applicant must hold a baccalaureate degree in mechanical engineering from an ABET-accredited program or a baccalaureate degree in a closely related field. Admission is competitive and the achievement of minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.

Accelerated Masters Program

Students completing their bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering at Boise State University may be eligible for the accelerated master’s program.
