Change Graduate Major
Bioengineering - MENG, MS, PhD

Status: Draft

Proposal

Proposal ID: 102204
Type: Change Major/Option/Minor/Certificate
Effective Term: Winter 2018
Justification:
The main change is to reduce the number of required, non-blanket course credits from 36 to 27. The graduate school used to require 36 credits, but recently reduced the number of required credits to 27. Thus, this change is consistent with graduate school requirements.

The other changes to the text are mainly to streamline and remove unnecessary information.

Program Information

Program Title: Bioengineering - MENG, MS, PhD 
College/Department or College/School: College of Engineering / School of Chemical, Biological and Environmental Engineering 

Program Type: Graduate Major 
Original Program: Bioengineering - MENG, MS, PhD 
Description:  
Requirements: Updated 

Students enrolled in the MEng and MS degree programs will complete at least 45 graduate credits. For students in the MS program, 12 of those credits must be thesis credits (BIOE 503). Students enrolled in the PhD program will complete at least 108 graduate credits. At least 27 of those credits must be non-blanket course work, and at least 36 must be thesis credits (BIOE 603).

Students in all Bioengineering graduate programs (MEng, MS and PhD) will be required to complete the program core curriculum for a total of 15 credits. The remaining credits required for completion of the degree program will be electives, and may include courses in science, mathematics, engineering or other topics (e.g., entrepreneurship).  

Core (15 credits)

BIOE 507. Bioengineering Seminar (1 credit/term, 3 credits required)
BIOE 510. Physiology for Engineers (4)
BIOE 511. Cellular and Molecular Bioengineering (3)
BIOE 512. Bioengineering Analysis (3)
BIOE 513. Drug and Medical Device Regulations in Technology Development (2)

Electives 

The number of credits depends on the degree type.

Students enrolled in the PhD program will complete at least 108 graduate credits. At least 36 of those credits must be non-blanket course work, and at least 36 must be thesis credits (BIOE 603).

Students in all Bioengineering graduate programs (MEng, MS and PhD) will be required to complete the program core curriculum for a total of 15 credits. The remaining credits required for completion of the degree program will be electives, and may include courses in science, mathematics, engineering or other topics (e.g., entrepreneurship). An abundance of courses are currently offered at OSU that could fulfill the elective requirements, including several courses related to bioengineering offered within the College of Engineering. In addition, the College of Veterinary Medicine's graduate program in Comparative Health Sciences includes various course offerings that can serve as electives for Bioengineering graduate students. These include courses in Animal Models (VMB 521) and Molecular Tools (VMB 671), as well as courses in bioinformatics, epidemiology, genomics and immunology.

All students submit a program of study during their first quarter in the program specifying the elective courses they plan to take to complete their degree requirements. Programs of study will be reviewed by a committee of BIOE program faculty to ensure that the program has sufficient breadth and depth in the context of the student’s planned research activities.
