Certificate in Biomaterials and Tissue Engineering
To be considered for admission to the program, applicants must meet the following in addition to the requirements for admission into the Graduate School:
- A bachelor's degree in a discipline relevant to biomedical engineering from a regionally accredited institution; and
- Minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.000 on a 4.000 scale.
Students who do not meet the 3.000 grade point average requirement may be admitted to this category on probation if reasonable evidence exists to indicate their ability to perform satisfactorily in 800-level or above coursework.
International applicants requiring an F-1 visa must be admitted into a degree-bound program and will not be admitted directly into the certificate program.
