Master of Science

Program specialization at the master's degree level may be undertaken in five areas:

  • biomechanics of injury
  • biomedical instrumentation
  • biomedical imaging
  • biomaterials and tissue engineering
  • computational and systems biology

These program specializations are available to both part-time and full-time students, in either research or non-research degree programs.

Admission to this program is contingent upon admission to the Graduate School. In addition, the minimum requirements for admission into the M.S. Program in Biomedical Engineering are:

  1. Official transcripts from an accredited institution showing completion of an engineering baccalaureate degree. Students with a baccalaureate degree from a non-engineering discipline will be considered for admission to the program if they have the prerequisite coursework in Calculus (1, 2 and Differential Equations) and Physics (1 and 2). Students without subsequent mathematical application course work (e.g. life science) must have passed these courses with a grade of 'B' or better. 
  2. A Grade Point Average (GPA) of 3.0 or higher on a 4.0 scale will be considered for Regular Admission and GPA between 2.8 and 3.0 will be considered for Qualified Admission.
  3. International applicants are required to submit a WES Evaluation.
