Requirements specific to the bioengineering program include:
A bachelor's degree, GPA of 3.0 or better, in engineering, biology, chemistry, physics, or another technical field from an accredited institution
Successful completion of calculus I, II, and III, and differential equations
At least one course in biology such as BSCI170 or BIOE120 or equivalent.
For non-engineering undergraduate degrees, we look for coursework indicating an aptitude for bioengineering. High marks in related undergraduate courses such as molecular biology and physical chemistry would indicate such aptitude.
Applicants who do not have an adequate background in engineering science will be required to take ENPM672, Fundamentals of Thermal Systems, in their first semester.
For a complete list of admission requirements, visit the Application Process page. Completed applications are reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
Master of Engineering: 30 Credits or 10 Courses
Students in the Professional Master of Engineering in bioengineering program will take three core courses and seven elective courses. Students must obtain permission from their academic advisor for each elective course. There is no research or thesis required for this degree.
Graduate Certificate in Engineering: 12 Credits or 4 Courses
Students must take one of the core courses and 3 elective courses from the BIOE MEng offerings, or others as approved by their advisor. Students must obtain permission from their academic advisor for each elective course.
Degree Planning Sheets
All students are expected to complete a preliminary course plan for their intended degree program (10-course for MEng or 4-course for GCEN) with the Senior Academic Advisor by the end of their first semester of study. The Degree Planning Sheet lists the core and technical elective requirements for each program, and all courses that are pre-approved for that program. Alternative technical electives must be approved by the same academic advisor.
