The five-year BS/MS program allows qualified students to receive a bachelor of science and a master of science in biomedical engineering in just five years. Students with qualifying grade point averages enroll in the program during their junior year. They begin their thesis research the summer between their junior and senior years. Their research laboratory experience will continue during the summer between their senior and fifth years and throughout their fifth year, culminating in the preparation of a written thesis and defense.

Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering

Specializations: Bioinstrumentation/Computers, Biomechanics/Biomaterials, Rehabilitation Bioengineering, Systems Physiology

Upon enrolling in the master of science program in biomedical engineering, a student selects one of four specializations. Faculty will design a curriculum and research program to address the specific goals of each student. Programs will include course work in engineering, biology, mathematics and medicine, all of which will be integrated with research laboratory experience.

A master of science student must complete 24 credit hours of course work (including three credit hours of physiology) and six credit hours of thesis work. The student also must pass a comprehensive examination and submit an approved thesis.

Master of Science in Healthcare Technologies Management

The Healthcare Technologies master of science degree program is designed to provide you with greater professional, technical and managerial skills in healthcare institutions and medical device/equipment professions. Additionally, this program was the first of its kind in the U.S. to combine business, technology and healthcare as part of its core curriculum.

Master of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering

This non-thesis degree program includes coursework in existing biomedical engineering graduate programs of study, upper division undergraduate courses that carry graduate credit, coursework taken outside of the BME Department offerings and a performance evaluation via a final written examination (capstone comprehensive written exam).

Doctorate Programs

Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering

The Doctor of Philosophy degree in biomedical engineering is conferred in recognition of marked ability and high attainment in the advancement of knowledge and pursuit of truth. It is never awarded solely as a result of coursework completed, no matter how faithfully extended over any prescribed period. In defining the requirement for this degree it is convenient to use semester credits, but it should be clearly understood that no number of credits alone entitle you to this degree. The comprehensive knowledge expected of you in your major field is such that the requirements usually demand no less than three years of full time work, or the equivalent beyond your baccalaureate degree.
