Admissions Requirements

Admission to graduate standing in the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Group (BMEGG) requires a Bachelor’s degree in a discipline relevant to biomedical engineering. Successful applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of 3.25 (out of 4.00) or greater. Applicants whose native language or language of instruction is not English are required to demonstrate English Language Proficiency with a score of 100 on the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) internet-based test or a score of 8.0 from the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). A student may apply for admission for either an M.S. or a PhD. The M.S. is not prerequisite to the PhD, and completing the MS requirements does not guarantee admission to the PhD program. An M.S. student may continue into the PhD program if approval is obtained from the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Admissions Committee. When accepted initially into the PhD program, the student may plan their program so as to obtain both degrees, if desired.

A complete application for Graduate Study includes:

  • Graduate Application Form
  • Application Fee
  • Transcript for each university attended
  • Three letters of recommendation
  • English proficiency examination for international applicants who have not studied at an English speaking University: TOEFL or other University approved examination. 

These materials will be reviewed by Graduate Studies and the Biomedical Engineering Graduate Admissions Committee, after which the student will be notified of their decision. The BMEGG expects strong competence in mathematics and engineering as necessary for successful completion of graduate study. Prior course work in these areas is emphasized in the evaluation of applications.
