Biomedical Engineering Program Information
The Master’s degree (thesis or nonthesis) requires at least 30 semester hours. The Doctoral degree requires at least 90 semester credit hours beyond the bachelor’s degree. No more than 30 hours of a master’s degree from another institution will be transferred to the Ph.D. degree. If a student holds a master’s degree in a discipline different from the doctoral program, the master’s work will not be counted toward the doctoral degree unless the BME Department successfully petitions the Dean of the Graduate School. Requirements for these degrees are given in the Graduate Degrees section of this catalog.
Complete BME program details and courses available are listed in the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Guidelines, on the BME website (which also offers information on available research areas).
Combined program: Biomedical Engineering also offers a combined bachelor’s/master’s degree program in collaboration with the other departments in the College of Engineering. This program allows qualified students to earn both a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree within 5 years for a net savings of 1 year.
