M.S. in Bioengineering
The Master of Science program in bioengineering has three options:
- project and
The thesis option requires the completion of a minimum of 21 credit hours of approved graduate course work, 9 hours of thesis research and the successful defense of a research-based thesis. The project option requires the completion of a minimum of 24 credit hours of approved graduate course work and 6 hours of project research. The coursework option requires the completion of at least 30 hours of approved graduate course work only. All course work must be approved by the student’s adviser (or the graduate director). The M.S. curriculum is designed to provide a general, flexible framework for students in selecting course work that is relevant to their specific area of research. Each student must meet the following minimum general course work requirements:
- Register and attend the weekly bioengineering department seminar. Registration and attendance are mandatory every semester.
- Complete 12 hours of bioengineering core course work:
