The goal of the PhD program is to train scientists and engineers whose careers in academia or industry are marked by professionalism, leadership, and notable contributions to their field. We expect our graduates will be people who can identify important problems in biology and medicine, devise and execute unique solutions, and explain both the problem and solution in the clearest terms.
A BME core sequence that occurs mostly in the 1st year and includes
A 2nd year that facilitates transition to the research thesis through more specialized coursework, the proposals writing course, and between 6 and 14 credits of laboratory research.
These courses are drawn from a list of select courses in the life sciences that have been approved for the program by the graduate committee.
These courses will drawn from a list of engineering courses reviewed and approved for graduate-level engineering content. The BME Intensives can also be used to satisfy the Approved Engineering requirement, but the same course cannot be applied to both the Engineering and the BME Intensive requirement.
free but should be relevant to a career in BME and must be approved by the preliminary exam committee
