Admission requirements and program policies

Admission requirements

  1. Student should be a major in the UNT Biomedical Engineering, BS program.
  2. Student can apply for the grad track option his/her junior year (following completion of at least 75 credit hours; a benchmark is if the student is ready for BME Senior Design in the following fall semester).
  3. Minimum of 3.3 or higher cumulative GPA required at the time of application submission, with a minimum GPA of 3.5 for BME core courses BMEN 1300, BMEN 2210, BMEN 2320, BMEN 3310, BMEN 3311, BMEN 3312 and BMEN 3321.
  4. The student should provide two recommendation letter from BME faculty members with his/her application.
  5. Application will be reviewed by both the BME undergraduate advisor and graduate advisor.
  6. Once approved by the BME advisors, the student must apply to the Toulouse Graduate School within the first semester of the senior year.

Program policies

  1. After being admitted to the grad track program and completion of at least 90 credit hours, the student can start taking the graduate courses as technical electives or biomedical electives for the BS degree requirement. For the graduate courses to be counted for the MS degree, the student should get a B or above for the courses.
  2. The student in the grad track program will be advised and monitored by both the undergraduate coordinator (prior to completion of the BS) and the graduate advisor (after completion of the BS).
  3. The student should choose a major research advisor in the semester that the student begins taking graduate courses.
  4. There will be an annual review of each student’s academic progress in meeting both bachelor’s and master’s degree requirements. If the student fails to meet degree requirements, the student will be placed in a probationary period for one semester. If the student continues to not meet the degree requirements in the probationary period, the student will be expelled from the grad track program (he/she will still be in the general biomedical engineering BS program if all general biomedical engineering BS degree requirements are met).
  5. Undergraduate students who have been accepted to a grad track option should complete all of their bachelor’s degree requirements and graduate within 12 months of the first day of the semester in which they begin taking graduate courses or enrollment in graduate level course work will be suspended.
  6. The students admitted to the grad track option will be admitted into the MS program on a conditional basis. Once the student has satisfied all course work for the BS degree and maintained a 3.0 or higher GPA, he/she will be fully admitted to the MS program.
  7. The student must enroll in graduate school in the long semester after finishing his/her BS degree and should take the remaining graduate courses in the following years to complete his/her biomedical engineering master’s degree. If the student did not enroll in graduate school in the long semester after finishing his/her BS degree those graduate course credit hours will not be counted toward the MS degree, even if the student comes back for graduate school in the future.

Program requirements

BMEN courses that apply to the grad track, with corresponding undergraduate courses in parenthesis:

  • BMEN 5310 - Clinical Instrumentation (BMEN 4311 )
  • BMEN 5315 - Computational Methods in Biomedical Engineering (BMEN 4310 )
