M.S. Degree Requirements: 

If necessary, after completing the deficiency program requirements of the track, all candidates pursuing a M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering must complete a thesis, and take at least 7 courses with minimum 21 credits in total. 
Course requirements involve 3 compulsory (core) courses 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, must also take this course).

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.
