Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis

IUPUI School of Engineering and Technology

MS in Biomedical Engineering

Prerequisites

Typical applicants to the Biomedical Engineering Program have an undergraduate degree in an engineering discipline. Outstanding students with degrees in related fields such as physics, chemistry and biology may also be admitted to the program with the expectation that the deficiencies in engineering and/or mathematics will be remedied prior to admission to the program or early in their graduate careers.

The number of graduate level credit hours required for a Master of Science degree in Biomedical Engineering is 30. These credits must be distributed according to the following subject areas:

Plan of Study with a Thesis option:

  • 3 credit hours Approved graduate Mathematics or Statistics courses
  • 12 credit hours Graduate Biomedical Engineering courses
  • 6 credit hours Approved graduate life science or engineering elective courses
  • 9 credit hours Thesis research

Plan of Study with a non-Thesis option:

  • 3 credit hours Approved graduate Mathematics or Statistics courses
  • 12 credit hours Graduate Biomedical Engineering courses
  • 0 – 6 credit hours Approved graduate life science or engineering elective courses
  • 9 – 15 credit hours Approved graduate engineering electives

With the approval of the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Education Committeestudents in a non-Thesis program of study may receive a limited number of graduate elective credit hours for successful completion of clinical or industrial internships. Deviations from these course requirements must by approved in advance by the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Education Committee and the Chair of the Biomedical Engineering Department.
