The M.S. graduate curriculum emphasizes physiology, tissue engineering, biomechanics, and transport phenomena. Associated courses are available on campus in applied mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, solid and fluid mechanics, electronics, computers, information sciences, system analysis, neurosciences, pathology, pharmacology, and clinical subjects. Faculty advisors are available to assist the students in planning for their courses and research.

Required Courses for the M.S. Degree Program (must be taken for letter grade)

Core Courses (total of seven required)
Engineering Physics (four required courses)
BENG 221, Mathematical Methods for Bioengineering
BENG 223, Thermodynamics, Statistical Mechanics, Interfacial Phenomena in Living Systems
BENG 226, Foundations of Biomechanics
BENG 227, Transport Phenomena in Living Systems

Life Sciences (three required courses)
BENG 230A, Biochemistry
