Biomedical Engineering, MS


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Degree programs listed by academic unit

The MS with a major in biomedical engineering requires a minimum of 30 semester hours for the thesis option and 33 semester hours for the non-thesis option, beyond the bachelor’s degree. All graduate students pursuing the MS with a major in biomedical engineering must create their degree plan in consultation with their major professor/graduate advisor.

Electives, 6–9 hours


The following elective courses will be chosen with the consent of the major professor or graduate advisor:

  • 5000- or 6000-level courses from any of EENG, MEEN, CSCE, MTSE or BIOL;

or

  • HMAP 5320, HMAP 5321, HMAP 5330 and BIOS 5300 from the Department of Health Management and Policy at the UNT Health Science Center.*

* These four courses constitute a certificate in Health Services Management, offered online by the UNTHSC in Fort Worth. BIOS 5300 satisfies the mathematics requirement for the MS with a major in biomedical engineering. For non-thesis option students, obtaining a certificate in Health Services Management does not require any additional courses beyond the 33 hours. For thesis option students, obtaining a certificate in Health Services Management would require an extra course to their degree plan, thus resulting in a total of 33 credit hours.

Mathematics, 3 hours


One course from the following options, chosen with consent of major professor/graduate advisor:

Other requirements


  • A grade point average of at least 3.0 is required to stay in the MS with a major in biomedical engineering.
  • The thesis option requires independent research. Students in the thesis option are required to submit a Master’s Thesis at least 14 days in advance of the oral thesis defense date. The thesis must be approved by the major professor and the student’s advisory committee, and must conform to all requirements of the Toulouse Graduate School, as stated at graduateschool.unt.edu.
