The overall objective of the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems is to provide multidisciplinary programs offering an instructional core curriculum and research in selected areas. The core requirements for the master's in Biomedical engineering include a minimum of 45 course credits (most courses carry three credits each) and an optional research thesis. While a research thesis is highly recommended a Non-Thesis option is also available. Students who elect to pursue a Non-thesis option are required to complete a minimum of 51 credits of coursework to be approved by the School Graduate Advisor. Students admitted into the biomedical engineering program are individuals who have earned undergraduate degrees in one of the traditional engineering areas. Students with undergraduate degrees in computer science; physics; chemistry; bio-chemistry, or mathematics may qualify for admission into the graduate biomedical science program. The core curriculum provides the necessary training in medical science, modeling and simulation and biomedical engineering applications. Students may focus their scholarly efforts on advanced coursework and research in such areas as Biomedical Imaging, Biomedical Instrumentation, Biomechanics, Biomaterials, Human Performance, Biomedical Signals, Neuroengineering, and Tissue Engineering. While such concentrations are facilitated, the School does not offer formal certification in these sub-areas and the final degree is MS in Biomedical Engineering. Biomedical Technology Development This concentration area and certificate program aims to provide engineers with the comprehensive education and training necessary to succeed in careers in business, industry, non-profit organizations, and government agencies involving biomedical technology development. The concentration area in Biomedical Technology Development is a professional degree program and follows the School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems' established procedures for a non-thesis option master's degree. Students interested in this concentration should develop a plan of study in consultation with the concentration coordinator, Dr. Kambiz Pourrezaei, before the beginning of the second term. The electives should also be chosen in consultation with the concentration coordinator.
