Degree Programs

The primary graduate degrees offered by departments involved with biomedical engineering are the MSc and the PhD. Both require courses, the number depending upon the department, and a thesis or dissertation that must be defended. The Interdisciplinary Individual Studies Program is for students wishing to obtain a degree from two departments, for example, the Department of Biomedical Engineering and another department; the MD-PhD program is offered by all departments offering the PhD. This section gives basic information about these programs.
