Biomedical Engineering Master of Science Program Guidelines


Admission to the BME master's program is subject to final approval by the BME graduate committee.  Students meeting the following minimum guidelines will be selected on a competitive basis.

Minimum Qualifications for Admission

  1. Bachelor of Science or Bachelor of Arts degree in Biomedical Engineering, Chemical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Electrical Engineering, or a closely related discipline.

  2. Undergraduate GPA of 3.0/4.0 or equivalent.

Case-by-Case Admission

Applicants for admission with an undergraduate GPA below 3.0, or with degrees in a related area, will be carefully considered for admission by the BME Graduate Committee.  Applicants with degrees in a related area shall meet the following  prerequisites for unconditional admission:

  • Two-course sequence in physics (e.g., PHYS 251, 252 in quarters; PHYS 2051, 2052 in semesters)
  • Two-course sequence in calculus (e.g., MATH 263A, 263B, MATH 263C in quarters; MATH 2301, 2302 in semesters)
  • One course in differential equations (e.g., MATH 340 in quarters; MATH 3400 in semesters)

Students without credit in these courses or their equivalents should be prepared to obtain credit in these early in the program.
