About this course
The interdisciplinary master's degree program in biomedical engineering combines core coursework with focused areas of proficiency that allow students more in-depth exposure to areas of particular interest. The program's introductory course is team-taught by biomedical engineering faculty from a range of disciplines, and outside lecturers are invited to give students a broad exposure to the field.
You can choose from two degree options:
- Plan A: Requires core and specialized coursework and a thesis on an area of interest in biomedical engineering.
- Plan B: The coursework-only option requires additional coursework credits in lieu of a thesis. Students choosing this option will not be eligible for graduate assistantships.
Both programs require students to complete core coursework as well as classes in three focal areas.
- GPA of 3.0
