Biomedical Engineering

Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering: Admission


Application to the Graduate School is made by the student and submitted to the Dean of the Graduate School. The application is forwarded to the program for review and recommendation from the Program Chair of Biomedical Engineering and the Dean of the Graduate School. A baccalaureate degree with a major in an engineering discipline from an ABET accredited institution is the best preparation. Students who do not possess this background are not discouraged from applying, but, in general, are required to take about 30 hours of undergraduate mathematics, science, and engineering, stressing engineering analysis and synthesis. Other remedial work may be required depending upon the specialization selected by the graduate student. Applicants are required to submit scores on the general portions of the Graduate Record Examination, the names and complete addresses of three academic or professional references, and a personal statement of purpose. A GRE score of 1170 or higher (Verbal plus Quantitative) is required for admission to the Ph.D. Program (1070 for M.S. admission). Students may enter the Ph.D. directly after the B.S. with a GRE (Verbal plus Quantitative) of 1270 or higher and an overall GPA of 3.25 for unconditional admission.
