MS in Biomedical Engineering
The minimum requirements for admission to the Master of Science in biomedical engineering include:1
- A bachelor's degree in a discipline relevant to BME;
- Transcript from each institution attended;
- Minimum undergraduate grade point average (GPA) of 3.000;
- Statement of purpose including a section on research interests;
- Graduate Record Examination scores;
- Three letters of recommendation; and
- Acceptable, official score on the TOEFL, IELTS, or PTE-Academic as proof of English proficiency.
Applicants may request a waiver of some of the above requirements (e.g., undergraduate GPA less than 3.000, bachelor's degree not relevant to biomedical engineering, etc.) for admission if sufficient evidence is provided to the BME graduate admissions committee for review.
Students entering the biomedical engineering MS program are expected to have already completed the following courses or their equivalents:2
|Anatomy and Physiology|
|General Chemistry (Chemistry I & II)|
If prior coursework deficiencies exist, the student may be admitted on a conditional basis. It is recommended that as much of the deficient coursework as possible be completed prior to beginning graduate study.
