The Master of Science degree provides students with a combination of experiences in basic research, design, development, and practical applications. The M.S. program requires successful completion of 26 credit hours plus an acceptable thesis. In special cases, a non-thesis option consisting of 31 credit hours is available for students with significant previous research or design experience. Enrollment in the non-thesis option requires approval of the Director of Graduate Studies and must be requested within the student’s first nine (9) credit hours of graduate work. The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers Master’s and Doctoral degrees in Biomedical Engineering. The program emphasizes the application of engineering principles to the areas of medicine and biology and covers the broad aspects of mechanics, fluids, mass transfer, and instrumentation, signal processing, systems analysis, materials and laboratory experimentation. UK-BME is committed to graduate education. The course work also stresses the practical application of these techniques to specific areas in rehabilitation engineering, sports medicine, orthopedic implant design, medical instrumentation, diagnosis and image processing.
