Curriculum

The Biomedical Engineering MS program offers 3 tracks:

Each track includes 2 options. The first specifies course requirements that include a thesis option and a second that specifies courses only. If you choose the master’s thesis option, you must register for at least 3 credits of BE 997X and then write and defend a master’s thesis according to Institute guidelines.
