The MEng Degree requires at least 25 total units of credit, comprehensive exam and capstone report/presentation. Those credits are allocated across three essential areas addressed below.
Please use the Degree Requirements Worksheet to plan your curriculum.
- BIOE Core Courses – 12 of 25 total units
- At least 12 units of strictly 200-level graduate units in the major
- Select one concentration of coursework in the fields of Bioinformatics and Computational Biology, Biomedical Engineering Design, Biomedical Imaging, Biomaterials and Devices, General Bioengineering, Mechanobiology, or Synthetic Biology
- All 200-level BIOE 2XX courses must be taken for a letter-grade
- Leadership Courses – must be 200 level
- Capstone Experience:
- Capstone Report
The report is a Capstone team project, and a deliverable for the E296MB capstone course. A draft is also a deliverable for the E295 communications course, to provide editing support.
- Comprehensive Exam
The Bioengineering Final Capstone presentation will take place late in the Spring semester and will consist of a 20 minute minimum presentation on the Capstone project. The presentation will be assessed by a BioE faculty member and an allied field member (for example, if a project is in ME, the second assessor must be in ME). Students will be asked probing questions during the presentation and answers given will determine a pass. If a student fails the presentation requirement, they will be given the option to give the presentation again the following Fall semester. Failure to pass the exam on this third attempt will constitute a failure of the comprehensive exam requirement for the MEng degree.
The Fung Institute will administer a written exam for the leadership portion of the curriculum during late November, during the exam periods for the required MEng leadership course, E270H/Accounting & Finance.
