Program outline
The bioengineering program requires 36 credits of graduate-level coursework. The program offers a common core of two courses, with six required courses within the chosen engineering track: biomedical or cell/metabolic. Students are advised to select two elective courses and complete a 6-credit thesis to earn the degree, or they may take three elective courses and choose a 3-credit project option.

All courses are 3 credits unless otherwise noted.
