Degree Type: 
Bachelor of Science in Biomedical Engineering

Program Description:

The Department of Biomedical, Industrial, and Human Factors Engineering offers a program of graduate study leading to a Master of Science in Engineering (MSE) degree with a major in biomedical engineering. The MSE program is broad in scope and covers all engineering disciplines represented at Wright State University. However, the specialization in Biomedical Engineering allows a very flexible program of study that involves all research areas covered by the program.

Admissions Requirements:

To be considered for admission to the MSE-Biomedical Engineering program, students must first satisfy basic requirements of the Graduate School. This includes having a bachelor's degree in engineering or a related area with an overall undergraduate grade point average of  at least 2.7 (on a 4.0 scale) or an overall undergraduate grade point average of at least 2.5 with an average of 3.0 or better for the last 60 semester hours (90 quarter hours) earned toward the undergraduate degree. International students must have a TOEFL score of at least 550/213 or an IELTS score of at least six. In addition, the program requires students from non-ABET accredited undergraduate programs to submit general GRE test scores. Program admission decisions are based on complete application information including overall academic performance and standardized test scores where applicable.

Program Learning Outcomes:

  • Obtain depth in one area of specialization and breadth in complimentary areas.
  • Acquire scientific knowledge and research skills to solve problems in their chosen area.
  • Prepare for an advanced professional career or further graduate studies.

Facilities:

Graduate students have access to a wide range of computer systems interconnected by local and wide-area networks. Access is available to high-end graphics workstations, multi-processor image-analysis systems, central file servers, and personal computers. Access is also available to the Ohio Supercomputer via the Ohio Academic and Research Network (OARNET). In addition, each graduate faculty member has a well equipped research laboratory with a network of heterogeneous computers and peripherals. Please visit http://www.cs.wright.edu/bie/ for details.
