GRADUATE SCHOOL OF NATURAL AND APPLIED SCIENCESGRADUATE PROGRAM OF BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING


Course Requirements

BIOMEDICAL ENGINEERING (BME 872), COURSE REQUIREMENTS AND COURSE TABLE

Course requirements involve 3 compulsory (core) courses(BME 501, BME 502 and graduate level applied mathematics course ) and 4 electives. Degree program courses must be distributed as:

  • A minimum of two courses from life sciences,
  • A minimum of two courses from engineering,
  • A minimum of two courses from mathematics and other sciences.

The compulsory core courses are:

1.Graduate level applied mathematics:

One of the following,

  • EE 501 - Linear system theory,
  • ES 501 - Analytical methods in engineering,
  • IAM 561 - Introduction to scientific computing I,
  • IAM 562 - Introduction to scientific computing II,
  • IAM 563 - Methods of applied mathematics,
  • ME 521 - Analytical Methods in Engineering I,
  • METE 503 - Mathematical methods in materials research I.

2.BME 501 - Introduction to Biomedical Engineering

3.BME 502 - Human Physiology (Candidates who have taken human physiology as a requirement of the undergraduate curriculum, i.e., medicine and biological sciences students, may replace this course by a graduate level life sciences course with the consent of BME502 course coordinator).

4.Research Methods and Ethics (Non-credit) (For students registered on 2016-Fall and later)

 

 In addition, candidates are required to choose a certain number of elective courses from a list which are given in the 'Course Requirements' for each track.

(a) From “University Rules and Regulations Governing Graduate Studies”

ARTICLE 18 – (4) Except for the graduate courses taken with NI status, courses taken previously in another diploma program that the student has completed and/or courses taken simultaneously from two different graduate programs cannot be substituted in both programs.

ARTICLE 32 – (3) In Master’s programs with a thesis, courses coded 3XX and 4XX may be taken provided that they were not taken during undergraduate education. However, only two of these courses may be counted in the course load of the program.

ARTICLE 40 – (4) Undergraduate courses taken in a doctoral program cannot be counted in the course load or towards doctoral credits.

 

(b) Appropriate courses with the code 5XX or 7XX could be selected with the consent of advisor or supervisor.
