Biomedical Engineering Major, MS


Requirements
In aerospace engineering, mechanical engineering, biomedical engineering, and engineering science, two MS options are offered. Option I requires a thesis. Option II does not require a thesis and provides graduate students, including co-op and other off-campus students, the opportunity to focus their programs in special areas through extended course work.

Aerospace Engineering Major • Biomedical Engineering Major • Mechanical Engineering Major • Option I (Thesis)

  Hours Credit  
1Course work total 24  
Thesis 6  
  Total 30

1 Courses in program (500-level or above) – 12 hours minimum. Mathematics (400-level or above) – 6 hours minimum.

Aerospace Engineering Major • Biomedical Engineering Major • Mechanical Engineering Major • Option II (Non-Thesis)

  Hours Credit
1Course work total 30   
  Total 30

1 Courses in program (500-level or above) – 18 hours minimum. Mathematics (400-level or above) – 6 hours minimum. 590 Selected Engineering Problems – 6 hours maximum.

For all program options, other 500-level engineering courses that are approved by the student’s master’s committee and the graduate programs committee may be substituted for the mathematics courses. All program options require participation in the departmental graduate seminars program and passing a final examination on all work submitted for the degree. The final examinations in Option II (non-thesis) will cover all course work. The thesis option, Option I, requires submission and defense of a written thesis that demonstrates the ability to conduct and report an independent investigation.
