PS/HA Cognate: Students must complete a minimum of 1 People & Society (PS) cognate and 1 Humanities & Arts (HA) cognate, to be selected from the list of available cognates. Each cognate should be a minimum of 3 courses (9 credit hours).


Technical Elective Labs are selected from BME 506, BME 566 or BME 395.


The undergraduate elective is any undergraduate level course with a number of credit hours sufficient to ensure that the student is enrolled for a total of 12 undergraduate credit hours during each semester of the senior year. The undergraduate elective can be any undergraduate class, but students are encouraged to select an engineering or science course.


All Technical Electives are taken as graduate courses. They are graduate-level courses (600 level and above) chosen from the BME course offerings with the approval of the advisor. A minimum of 6 credit hours of technical electives must be taken at the 700 level. Non-BME courses need to be approved by the advisor and the chairperson.
