Graduate Program Curriculum
U-M's BME graduate program is jointly supported by the College of Engineering and the Medical School. Our M.S. and Ph.D. degrees in biomedical engineering are awarded through the Horace Rackham School of Graduate Studies.
Under the guidance of BME faculty advisors, a student may plan a course of study in one of six concentrations. Click each concentration for a sample curriculum. Once students complete the master's-degree requirements outlined in these course plans, they take a minimum of nine additional graded credit hours directly related to their PhD research.
- Bioelectrical Concentration
- Biomaterials Concentration
- Biomechanics Concentration
- Biomedical Imaging Concentration
- Biotechnology Concentration
- Ergonomics and Rehabilitation Engineering Concentration
Within each concentration, student research opportunities are as vast as the research areas of our faculty, who come not only from the College of Engineering and the Medical School, but also from the schools of Dentistry, Public Health, and Kinesiology, as well as the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts.
