Master's in Biomedical Engineering Requirements
Review UND's Biomedical Engineering master's program requirements.
Admissions to Master's in Biomedical Engineering
At the University of North Dakota, we take a different approach in our admission process and welcome students of diverse backgrounds to apply to our program. Some of these students are coming from biology and clinical backgrounds, or even business. Nevertheless, this does not mean they do not need to know mathematics and calculus-based physics to become an engineer. Those students who do not have the required background in mathematics and physics will need to take relevant undergraduate courses either at UND, or any other accredited institution and transfer their grades to us. The requirements are as follows:
- Calculus I
- Calculus II
- Calculus III – Multivariable Calculus
- Differential Equations
- Two semesters of Calculus based Physics
Depending on your background and interest, you might have to also take undergraduate courses in engineering or computer science. For example, if you are interested in the analysis of ECG signals you might have to pass a couple of undergraduate courses in Electrical Engineering and computer programming. This is particularly important if you are applying for our online program. It is very possible that the project needs to be of analytical and programming nature, making it suitable for an online student who cannot be on campus for projects requiring physical presence.
If you are interested, you can apply directly to our graduate program and pass these required courses through our online program, while completing graduate course concurrently.
The exact list of prerequisites is normally determined after an interview with the director of the program. They depend on the background of the student and the type of projects they are interested in. If you would like to speak directly to the graduate director, please contact Dr. Tavakolian at kouhyar.tavakolian@UND.edu.
