Prior to commencing coursework at Tulane, an entering graduate student will prepare a proposed curriculum in conjunction with his/her advisor. Prior to receiving the Master's degree, the student must present evidence of having completed the following courses, either at Tulane or at his/her undergraduate institution:
|1 year of college physics
|1 year of college chemistry
|1 semester of biology with lab
|1 course in computer programming
|3 semesters of calculus
||(MATH 1210-1220, MATH 2210)|
|1 semester of differential equations
|1 semester of statics
|1 semester of mechanics of materials
|1 semester of fluid mechanics
|1 semester of materials engineering
|1 semester of circuits
|1 semester of electronics||(BMEN 2730)
A special program has been developed for those with a B.S. or B.A. in a non-engineering discipline who wish to earn a degree in Biomedical Engineering. The entrance requirements are:
The program normally takes at least two years as follows:
The student enrolls in the undergraduate division of the School of Science and Engineering as a non-degree-seeking student. The courses taken during the first year are typically the following, although the specific selection may be tailored to the student's background if some of the following have already been satisfied:
These courses do not count for credit towards a graduate degree. Academic performance in these courses determines whether the student is admitted to the undergraduate or graduate division at the beginning of the second year.
Students who complete the courses listed above with a grade point average of 3.00 or better may transfer into the BME Graduate Program. During the first semester of the second year, the student must pass BMEN 3440, Biofluid Mechanics, which does not count for graduate credit. Students who complete the courses listed above with a grade point average of less than 3.00 are given the option to apply to the undergraduate division of the School of Science and Engineering to complete the Bachelor's degree as a transfer student.
Course listings are updated during the first week of classes for each semester, or as classes are added/deleted from the catalog. Up-to-the-minute listings and additional registration information is available from the Office of the Tulane University Registrar.
