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.
