Biomedical Engineering, Medical Imaging 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—Medical Imaging Track

To meet graduation requirements, students must achieve 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.

Listed below are required (core) courses for students in the Medical Imaging track that fulfill the requirements for an MS in Biomedical Engineering.


  •  See List below 3-9 Credits *


Total Credits: 30

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 Medical Imaging track, the remaining 6 credits must be selected from the list of course 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 one or two biomedical engineering research courses (BE 873x ) without writing a thesis.
