The Degree of MSc (Biomedical Engineering) [Graduate]

Program Requirements

The requirements for this degree consist of coursework and a thesis. Required courses depend on the undergraduate background of the student; however, normally a minimum of ★9 in graduate courses must be completed. Of the required courses, a minimum ★6 must be obtained through credit in BME 513 , 529, BME 530 , 541, BME 553 , BME 564 , 575, BME 579 , 583, BME 599 , and BME 630 , or EE BE 512, 540. The remaining courses are determined by the student’s supervisory committee and are relevant to the chosen area of research. Undergraduate courses taken for graduate credit carry only half the course weight assigned to that course.

The minimum period of residence is two four-month terms of full-time attendance at the University of Alberta.

Length of Program

The time required to complete the program will vary according to the previous training of the applicant and the nature of research undertaken; however, a minimum of two years is normally required.
