The BME MS program will consider applications for admission from students with a BS/BA or a more advanced degree in biomedical, chemical, mechanical, or electrical engineering; computer engineering or science; physics; mathematics, chemistry; or biological sciences. We also consider applications from students with medical, dental, nursing and legal degrees.
The program requires that all applicants must have taken two semesters of college-level calculus and two semesters of calculus-based physics. It further highly recommends that each student’s undergraduate preparation include the following sequence of math and science courses: -1 semester of linear algebra -1 semester of ordinary differential equations -1 semester of multivariable calculus -2 semesters of biology with labs -2 semesters of general chemistry with labs
For those focusing on the Biomaterials track, additional background in organic chemistry and biochemistry is desirable. For those choosing the Medical Imaging or Bioinstrumentation tracks, additional advanced mathematics courses, e.g. complex variables, partial differential equations are recommended. Though not required, exposure to CAD/FEA, Matlab, C++ /Python computer programming experience is highly desirable.
