2013-2014 Undergraduate and Graduate Catalog (without addenda) [ARCHIVED CATALOG]

Biomedical Engineering, Biomaterials Track, M.S.

The Curriculum

Requirements for the Master of Science

Each track within the BME MS program includes two options. The first specifies course requirements that include a thesis option and a second that specifies courses only. Students who choose the master’s thesis option must register for at least 3 credits of BE 997x  and then write and defend a master’s thesis according to Institute guidelines. Those students electing the thesis option will also be required to take CM 5040 : Chemical Lab Safety.

Biomedical Engineering-Biomaterials Track

To meet graduation requirements, students must have an overall B average in all courses (including MS thesis, research or guided studies) and must not have more than two grades of C in required (core) subjects.

Required courses for all students in the Biomaterials Track that fulfill their requirements for an MS in Biomedical Engineering are shown below:


  • See List below 6 Credits *


Total Credits: 31

In addition

Once per year, biomedical engineering MS students must register for Colloquium in Biomedical Engineering (BE 9730 , 0 credits) and Seminar in Biomedical Engineering (BE 9740 , 0 credits).

For all students in the Biomaterials and Polymer Therapeutics track, remaining credits (6) must be selected from the list of electives unless permission is granted by the biomedical engineering graduate adviser to substitute a course not listed below. Alternatively, students also may elect to take research in biomedical engineering courses (BE 873x , 3 to 6 credits) without writing a thesis.
