Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering

The College of Engineering offers two different programs leading to the Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering, the Thesis and the Non-thesis program.

The thesis program leading to the Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering requires at least 30 semester credit hours as follows: (1) Biomedical Engineering Foundation coursework totaling 9 semester credit hours, (2) at least 9 semester credit hours of Biomedical Engineering Core coursework, (3) 6 semester credit hours of thesis (BME 599), and (4) all remaining coursework should be selected from either the Biomedical Engineering Core or Biomedical Engineering Electives listings below, with no more than 6 semester credit hours at the 400-level.

The non-thesis program leading to the Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering requires at least 36 semester credit hours as follows: (1) Biomedical Engineering Foundation coursework totaling 9 semester credit hours, (2) at least 9 semester credit hours of Biomedical Engineering Core coursework, and (3) all remaining coursework should be selected from either the Biomedical Engineering Core or Biomedical Engineering Electives listings below, with no more than 6 semester credit hours at the 400-level.
