Graduate Biomedical Engineering (BME)
Interdepartmental (Interdisciplinary) Joint Research Collaboration

Biomedical engineering is a discipline that advances knowledge in engineering, biology and medicine, and improves human health through cross-disciplinary activities that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. It includes: 
  1. The acquisition of new knowledge and understanding of living systems through the innovative and substantive application of experimental and analytical techniques based on the engineering sciences. 
  2. The development of new devices, algorithms, processes and systems that advance biology and medicine and improve medical practice and health care delivery.

The University of Denver is now offering specialty tracks in Biomedical Engineering at the Masters and Ph.D. level. All students participating in this  program are subject to additional requirements from their degree-granting department (i.e. Chemistry/Biochemistry, Engineering etc.). It is the intended that the curriculum requirements for the Biomedical Engineering (BME) specialty not be a carbon copy of their current degree-granting department therefore the minimum requirements for students to obtain a BME specialty for their graduate degree is delineated below.

1 quarter -     Special Topics: Introduction to Biomedical Engineering/Bioengineering (1st year preferable)
3 quarters-    Lab rotation  (1st year requirement)
                     Students will use the appropriate independent study/research course listing worth 1QH.  Each rotation
                     must been with a different lab and at least one rotation must be completed outside the studentís home 
1 quarter-      Mathematics 
1 quarter-     Biology, chemistry or psychology
3 quarters-   Engineering (graduate level courses)

Thesis in an appropriate biomedical engineering topic is also required
