Qualified students are allowed to earn a Bachelor’s degree in an approved undergraduate
discipline and a Master’s degree in Biomedical Engineering (BME) in five years. Students
with high school advanced placement credits may require less time. Students will join
research teams organized through the Joint Graduate Program in Biomedical Engineering,
which is shared by the University of Memphis and The University of Tennessee Health
Science Center. Students may apply once they have reached sophomore standing and have
completed one semester of course work.
In addition to an application form, students must submit one letter of reference and
a copy of their transcript to the BME department. Each applicant will be required
to complete an interview with a pre-graduate advisor in the BME department. In order
to remain in the program past the junior year, students must maintain a minimum GPA
of 3.25. Students in their senior year will become eligible to apply for combination
senior status, allowing them to take graduate courses in BME. To continue in this
program past the B.S., students must submit a “Change of Status” application with
Graduate Admissions. Further information may be found at: http://engr.memphis.edu/threetwo.html.
