Courses for Biomedical Engineering Emphasis

Students selecting the Biomedical Engineering emphasis are expected to have an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Engineering or a closely related field. A minimum of 33 credit must be taken for the M.S.E Biomedical Engineering program.

The course requirements for the Biomedical Engineering emphasis are shown in the following table.

Culminating Experience

The culminating experience route for each student must be approved by the graduate program director. The Culminating Design Project, EGR 690, is not an option in the biomedical engineering emphasis. Students select either the culminating M.S.E. project, for six credits, or the culminating M.S.E. thesis, for six credits. The project and thesis routes are equivalent: the Master’s Project is reserved for proprietary work, whereas the Master’s Thesis is reserved for non-proprietary work. The culminating experience requires the following courses:

Students may register for EGR 693 more than once, for a combined total of six credits.
Students who need to complete their culminating project after finishing the six credits of EGR 693 must continuously register for 

EGR 694 - Continuation of Master’s Project Credits: 1.The credit for this course does not count towards the minimum of 33 credits of the M.S.E. program.

OR 

EGR 695 - Master’s Thesis Credits: 1 to 6; maximum of 6 credits. Students may register for EGR 695 more than once, for a combined total of six credits. 

Students who need to complete their culminating thesis after finishing the six credits of EGR 695 must continuously register for  EGR 696 - Continuation of Master’s Project or Thesis Research Credits: 1
