The Interdisciplinary Engineering Degrees (MSE/MS) require 30 credit hours total with at least 18 hours of Purdue engineering courses. To complete the degree you will need some graduate courses in addition to the minimum credits required for the concentration in Biomedical Engineering (BME) outlined below. Most courses are 3 credit hours.
* Engineering courses are offered by engineering schools and/or taught by engineering faculty such as AAE-Aeronautics & Astronautics, ABE - Agricultural & Biological Engineering, BME-Biomedical Engineering, CE-Civil Engineering, ECE-Electrical & Computer Engineering, EEE - Environmental & Ecological Engineering, IE-Industrial Engineering, ME-Mechanical Engineering, MSE - Materials Engineering, NUCL -Nuclear Engineering, SYS - Systems Engineering. Examples of non-engineering courses are BIOL - Biological Sciences, CS-Computer Science, GRAD-Graduate studies, MA-Mathematics, STAT-Statistics, etc.

Elective Graduate Courses (credits to complete 30 total)
The courses listed above are pre-approved for use on the BME concentration Plan of Study (POS); some courses on this list may not be currently offered so always check the available courses. A student may select a Purdue course of interest that is not on the pre-approved list, however, you must submit course documentation for approval before taking the course or using it on your electronic plan of study (ePOS).
The student is ultimately responsible for knowing and completing all degree requirements. This website is a knowledge source for specific requirements and completion.
Note: The plan of study worksheet is an aid to help you understand the program requirements and map out a plan. The actual electronic plan of study ePOS is submitted via myPurdue during the first semester you're registered after admission to a degree program.
