Become well prepared for a career in biomaterials or biomechanics
Students pursuing BME + ME:
- Collaborate with researchers and faculty in Duke’s nationally recognized biomaterials and materials science community
- Complete research projects that may involve biological and electronic materials and interfaces, therapeutic ultrasound and nanostructures.
- Gain valuable preparation for a career in the industrial or research sectors.
The double major in biomedical engineering and mechanical engineering and materials science draws on the collaborative relationship between the two departments to support students interested in work involving biomechanics, materials science, biomaterials and mechanobiology.
Students pursuing the BME + ME double major must complete 37 credits from both programs:
updates for Matriculating 2021 students
Current first-year engineering students pursuing the BME + ME double major must also complete 37 credits from both programs, but they will pursue a sequence with different math courses. These changes include:
- Math 218D-2 Matrices and Vectors instead of Math 212 Multivariable Calculus
- Math 219 Multivariable Calculus instead of Math 216 Linear Algebra and Differential Equations
