Interested IUSM students should apply to the BME Master’s program 1 to 2 semesters before they want to start the MS program (typically in the fall). MD students should also consult with their IUSM advisors to find the best time to exit and return to their MD curriculum to minimize interruption to their medical training process. Contact the BME department for more information.

Applications are reviewed by the BME Graduate Education Committee (GEC) and evaluated using the same requirements as other applicants. These guidelines are described in detail in the BME MS Graduate Handbook. One exception is that MCAT scores will be accepted in place of the GRE.
Students with a non-BME or non-engineering undergraduate degree who are accepted into the program may be offered introductory or co-requisite graduate level courses aimed at bridging any deficiencies in math and engineering, with a focus on their specific area of concentration.
Teaching Assistantship: The TA provides partial financial support for expenses related to graduate tuition, program fees, student health insurance and/or living expenses. The TA requires at least 6 credits of degree-applicable coursework and up to 20 hours of service to the BME department (e.g. laboratory and/or recitation assistant, grading.) The TA is renewable each semester in response to available service opportunities in the BME department.
Dean’s Scholar: Scholarship of up to $4K per semester ($8K per academic year, excluding summer) is available to new, first-year, non-resident, full-time graduate students to apply toward tuition for courses taken in the School of Engineering and Technology.
Dual degree students electing to complete a thesis project are eligible for funding as a graduate research assistant.
