This program prepares students who have a strong interest in gaining in-depth knowledge, at the graduate level, in biomedical engineering. All of the general requirements for enrollment, participation, and completion of a degree documented in the current catalog of UND or NDSU as appropriate shall be required. Specific requirements over and above the general catalog requirements are as follows:
a) Bachelor of Science degree from an ABET accredited engineering program
b) Students holding a B.S. degree in other disciplines may be admitted to Qualified Status with an obligation to acquire the necessary background undergraduate engineering knowledge. The exact requirements will be determined on a case-by-case basis
c) Graduate Record Examination General Test for applicants from non-ABET accredited programs
d) Minimum GPA is 3.0 (4.0 scale) is required. Conditional admittance may be obtained for GPA less than 3.0.
