The Biomedical Engineering program takes an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to advance the knowledge of its graduates toward developing an understanding of fundamental issues at the interface of engineering, biology, and medicine.

About

Students will learn about the evolutionary process, focusing on how living things function and how several branches of engineering and science are interconnected in these processes. Biomedical Engineering has the potential to improve human health through cross-disciplinary research and application that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice.

This program builds knowledge, skills, and critical thinking necessary to further new discoveries in tissue regeneration, biomaterials, biologically inspired materials, tissue engineering, physiological measurements, bioelectronics, biomechanics, bioMEMS, wireless communications in cells, biosensing, biorobotics, biosignaling, ergonomics and associated interfaces.

Dual Degrees

The department offers the opportunity to acquire dual graduate degrees along with the M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering. Candidates for these dual Master’s Degree programs are typically required to complete a total of 48-52 credit hours to satisfy the requirements of two Master’s Degrees. This implies 15-19 credit hours in addition to the 34 hours required for the M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering.

The Master of Science degree will be awarded only to those students successfully completing the following requirements:

  • A minimum number of 30-34 semester hours (see specific program requirements) with a QPR of “B” or better in an approved program of study. The number of semester hours which may be transferred from another institution is an individual matter that will be reviewed by the major department, but is normally no more than 9 semester hours.
  • Satisfactory completion of the state licensure requirements as prescribed by the faculty of the major department, and a favorable recommendation from the faculty upon review of the student’s program and performance, after the student has made a formal application for a Master’s diploma.

Cooperative Education Program

The School of Engineering offers an optional cooperative education program. See the Cooperative Education section of that for further information.

Learning Outcomes

Consistent with the university’s vision, and with the missions of the School of Engineering and the Biomedical Engineering Program, the educational objectives for the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering program were established as follows:

  • Graduates of the BME program will have a sound integrated knowledge of science and engineering fundamentals with respect to the biomedical issues.
  • Graduates will be proficient in the use of modern techniques, tools, procedures, and information sources which are useful in the definition and solution of problems in biomedical engineering.
  • Graduates will have the ability to apply their scientific knowledge and engineering tools and techniques to design useful and economically feasible novel materials, devices, systems and processes which address problems relevant to the fields of biomedical engineering.
  • Graduates will have the breadth and depth of knowledge, and a commitment to continued learning, necessary to understand the economic, social, ethical, and aesthetic aspects of their profession and their work, and to effectively communicate the results of their work.
  • Programme Structure

    Students in the Biomedical Engineering graduate program must earn 34 credits. While 28 credits are earned by taking classes, six credits are earned by completing a team-based, publishable graduate-level research project. The core curriculum accounts for 16 credits.

    Academic Requirements

    You need the following GPA score:

    Required score: 2.8

    Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to 2.8 on a US 4.0 grading scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on a 4.0 scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

    Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

    Bachelor of Science degree , or its equivalent , in engineering or a related field from an accredited university or recognized international institution Recommended cumulative undergraduate grade point average of 2 . 8 or higher
