Integrated MS/BS Degree-Mechanical Engineering - Carnegie Mellon University

Integrated Master's/Bachelor's Degree Program

The Integrated Master’s/Bachelor’s program (IMB) is an exciting opportunity for students who excel academically and want to pursue both a Bachelor’s degree and a Master’s Coursework (MSC) degree in Mechanical Engineering.

  • The application fee, Graduate Record Exam (GRE), and recommendation letters are waived.
  • The Bachelor’s degree may be completed simultaneously with the MS degree or in a preceding semester.
  • Courses taken for the MSC degree may not be counted in the Bachelor degree requirements. 
  • The two degrees are typically completed in 8 to 10 semesters. 
  • At least one semester of full time graduate status is required when completion of the two degrees extends beyond the 8th semester.
  • A student with a cumulative QPA of 3.00 or higher in the second semester of their junior or senior year is guaranteed admission into the MS degree through the IMB program.
  • To be officially admitted, the student must complete the IMB degree program form: MechE IMB Form.

If a student does not meet the exact overall 3.00 QPA requirement, they must apply for admission via the Graduate Admissions guidelines. All portions of the application must be completed.
