Students who complete their BS degree in BME at UW-Madison, with an overall GPA of at least 3.0 or a GPA of 3.25 for the final 60 credits, are eligible to apply for the MS degree and can complete it in only 24-credits, which is intended primarily for students not planning to pursue a PhD. Those interested in obtaining a PhD should take the 30-credit MS option.
At the University of Wisconsin Madison we offer a master degree in Biomedical Engineering. Specific course selection is very flexible and draws upon a variety of courses. The required coursework is designed to complement each student's interests and background in biomedical engineering.
Because of the diverse technical requirements for various specialties, the PhD is administered on a degree-by-committee basis. A PhD in BME requires passing a qualifying examination as well as a preliminary examination. The PhD qualifying examination consists of five 30-minute one-on-one oral tests with five BME faculty. Students take two tests in their chosen core area of specialization. Two tests evaluate two additional biomedical engineering core areas chosen by the student and a fifth exam concentrates on testing the student’s knowledge of engineering physiology or cell biology.
