MS Programs

The Master of Science degree offers the graduate student an opportunity to obtain advanced training in selected areas of biomedical engineering and to begin independent research.

The department admits four types of students to its MS program: a) Students with BS degrees in Biomedical Engineering or similar engineering fields; b) Students with BS degrees in Electrical, Computer, Mechanical, Chemical, or similar engineering fields; c) Students with BS degrees in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Chemistry, Biology or similar fields; d) Students with MD or similar degrees

Both a 30-credit thesis option and a 30 credit non-thesis option are available. Students in the thesis option must complete 24 credits of courses and 6 thesis credits (BME 710). Students in the Non-Thesis must complete 27 credits of courses and a 3 credit independent design or research project for which the student enrolls in BME605. There is also a 5-year BS/MS option available for qualified undergraduate students enrolled within the Department.

Additional information on the MS program in biomedical engineering, including areas of research, admission criteria, curriculum, advising and graduation requirements can be found in the BME MS Student Manual.
