MEDTECH and UMD established a collaborative education initiative defined as “3+2 Dual Diploma Program” by which qualified students enrolled at MEDTECH, after successfully completing the first 3 years of their undergraduate curriculum, will be accepted into selected fields of study in the College of Engineering and Computer Science at UMD for the next 2 years to finish the required education curriculum to qualify for their bachelor’s degree awarded by MEDTECH and a master’s degree conferred by the Regents of the University of Michigan upon the recommendation of the Horace H. Rackham School of Graduate Studies and UMD.
At the end of the five years, students earn both an Engineering Diploma from MedTech and a Master’s Degree from the University of Michigan. According to this agreement, MedTech students will enjoy a significant reduction (80% reduction in the difference between out of state and in-state tuition fees).
