Materials Science and Engineering and Business Administration

Undergraduate Program

Introduction to the Program

The Management, Entrepreneurship, & Technology (M.E.T.) program is a fully integrated, dual-degree undergraduate program that accelerates your education through the College of Engineering and the Haas School of Business. M.E.T. gives you world-class instruction, top-notch industry experience and career coaching, and a collaborative small cohort immersion. In four years, you earn a full Bachelor of Science degree in Business from Berkeley-Haas and your choice of a Bachelor of Science degree in one of six engineering programs from Berkeley Engineering: Engineering Undeclared, Bioengineering, Civil Engineering, Electrical Engineering & Computer Sciences, Industrial Engineering & Operations Research, Materials Science & Engineering, or Mechanical Engineering.

Admission to the Program 

The M.E.T. program seeks inquisitive, self-motivated students with a passion for finding and solving big problems. It is highly competitive and freshman admission is open during the UC application period (November 1-30). 

Current Berkeley Engineering students majoring in BioE, CE, EECS, IEOR, MSE, or ME are eligible to apply to the M.E.T. program during the fall of their sophomore year. If admitted, students will join M.E.T. during their junior year. Students enrolled in any other college at UC Berkeley, or admitted as junior transfers to UC Berkeley, are not eligible to apply to the M.E.T. Program.

Amplify Your Major

I wanted to...learn technical skills but also be equipped with the business savvy to market those products. I felt that the M.E.T. program was created just for me.
