The Research MS program requires a total of 31 credits, which includes:

  • Graduate Engineering Mathematics-credits (approved math courses)
  • Statistics for Bioengineers-3 credits (approved statistics courses)

  • MS Thesis-6 credits
  • Teaching Practicum-1 credit

Typically, completion of the Research MS program requires two years. Within the first year of enrollment (preferably within the first semester), the MS candidate is expected to finalize the general area in which he/she will write a thesis and an advisor who will guide the work. After completing degree requirements and the research project the student is to prepare a Master’s Thesis. The student (under the guidance of his/her advisor) selects a thesis committee of three or more persons. The committee should consist of the student’s advisor (who will act as the Chairman of this committee), at least one additional faculty member from within the Department of Bioengineering and at least one faculty member from outside the department. The committee meets at least once a year. All students must maintain a 3.0 GPA to remain in good standing in the program.
