The Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a graduate research program in the Engineering Faculty which requires a research thesis for graduation. The requirements listed on this site are minimum admissions requirements for this graduate program. As the Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering (BME) is a graduate research program, professors in this Department/Graduate Program may require additional admissions requirements and/or pre-requisites, please check with the Academic Advisor (professor) offering you tentative acceptance BEFORE submitting an online admissions application.
