Q: I have a Bachelor of Science degree in another engineering/science field. Can I still apply to the Master of Science program in Biomedical Engineering?
Yes. Admission to our Master’s level programs is based on having completed the necessary prerequisites for the program. These criteria vary by program but usually include calculus through differential equations; a complete sequence of engineering-based physics; an electrical engineering circuits course; a computer programming course (C++); and fundamental understanding of biology, chemistry and organic chemistry.
