  15. Where is Biomedical Engineering at MSU • 20+ Faculty pursuing biomedical related research • College wide option applicable to all majors • Biochemical Option in Chemical Engineering • Biomaterials Option in Materials Science & Engineering • College Biomedical Option is a selective cognate in Biosystems Engineering

  16. Where is Environmental Engineering • Environmental Option in Chemical Engineering • Environmental Option in Civil Engineering • Environmental Studies Cognate in Biosystems Engineering • RISE Living-Learning program

  17. Where is Manufacturing Engineering • Manufacturing Option in Mechanical Engineering • Manufacturing Option in Materials Science and Engineering • MS in Manufacturing and Engineering Management available in Eli Broad College of Business, to qualified graduates in all ABET-accredited engineering majors – one additional year

  18. Can I mixBusiness and related courseswith Engineering? • Engineering Arts major mixes a broad foundation from the Engineering curriculum with courses from Business, Economics and/or Telecommunications. • Information Technology Specialization permits students in Business, Engineering and Telecommunication to take a common block of elective courses.

  19. Will MSU assist mein planning and pursuing my job search? • Co-operative Engineering Education Program Arts matches hundreds of students and employers every year, in a formal and continuing program • MSU Career Services and Placement places a full-time representative in the Engineering Building to assist in career planning, resume and interview preparation.
