grad-biomedicalengineering

Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering tools for solving problems in biology and medicine. It is an engineering discipline that is practiced by professionals trained primarily as engineers, who specialize in medical and biological applications. This area of study combines fundamentals of the biomedical sciences with advanced engineering methods of analysis and design, and brings together these two fields in order to contribute to the design of new medical instruments and devices, apply engineering principles for understanding and repairing the human body and other biological systems, and use engineering tools for decision making and cost containment.

The interdisciplinary degree program offers a course of graduate study leading to the master of science or the doctor of philosophy degrees in biomedical engineering. The Department of Biomedical Engineering should be of interest to students who wish to practice engineering or engage in research in an engineering specialization in medicine and biology. An individualized course of study is planned with a faculty advisor. Biomedical engineering faculty and affiliated faculty come from the various colleges and professional schools throughout the university. They specialize in biomedical engineering areas as diverse as biomechanics, bioinstrumentation, biomedical imaging and biophotonics, micro and nanotechnology, systems biology, biomaterials, cellular engineering, tissue engineering, neuroengineering, and rehabilitation and human performance. A list of biomedical engineering faculty, affiliated faculty, and their respective areas of specialization is available from the department website.

Graduate School Resources

Resources to help you afford graduate study might include assistantships, fellowships, traineeships, and financial aid. Further funding information is available from the Graduate School. Be sure to check with your program for individual policies and restrictions related to funding.

Program Resources

It is our experience that nearly all doctoral students in the BME department obtain funding, but there are no guarantees. A limited number receive fellowships. A few students enrolled in M.S. coursework program are self-funded.

Research assistantships are available from individual faculty based on their research funding and awarded when grants are funded and after applications for BME admission are accepted. Sometimes there are project assistantships, teaching assistantships, and traineeships also available. A few students enrolled in M.S. coursework program are self-funded.

Admitted with funding

We have a limited number of university or departmental fellowships to offer each year. In addition, there are research assistantships that are offered to grad applicants from individual faculty members. Teaching assistantships (TA) are possible through specific departments with more opportunity in lower-level courses, such as calculus, chemistry, and physics. Often, funding matches with specific faculty occur during the Visit Wisconsin Weekend in the spring.

Admitted without funding

If you are admitted without funding, please know that you will be considered by BME faculty for potential support. You are also encouraged to contact faculty in BME whose research is of particular interest. Please wait to hear from us about your admission without aid before contacting faculty for support. You may also apply to BME specific TA positions after being admitted or other TA positions on campus.

 Guidelines for students who earned a master's degree in another field at UW-Madison

  1. Students who have earned a master's degree in another field at UW-Madison should contact the Associate Chair of the PhD Degree to understand remaining course requirements. A maximum of 7 credits can be counted from a separate MS degree, in compliance with the Graduate School's Double Degrees policy.
  2. Master’s degree students who have been absent for five or more years lose all degree credits earned before their absence. 
  3. All students with a prior master's degree will need to complete the Qualifying Exams and Preliminary Exam requirements even if coursework requirements have been met. Please discuss your specific plan with the Associate Chair of the PhD Degree.

Graduate School Policies

The Graduate School’s Academic Policies and Procedures provide essential information regarding general university policies. Program authority to set degree policies beyond the minimum required by the Graduate School lies with the degree program faculty. Policies set by the academic degree program can be found below.

Major-Specific Policies

Prior Coursework

Graduate Work from Other Institutions

A student may transfer graduate coursework from other institutions with program approval. These courses may not be used toward the Graduate School's Minimum Graduate Residence Credit at UW-Madison (32 credits). Coursework earned five years or more prior to admission to the PhD program is not allowed to satisfy requirements. Reach out to the BME Graduate Coordinator for more information.

If a student earned a master's degree at another institution, the following guidelines apply:

  1. If the previous degree was a master's in BME the program may waive up to 18 credits of PhD track coursework requirements. Note that the credits do not transfer; students must fulfill the remaining track requirements and then meet the 32 credit minimum at UW-Madison in order to advance to dissertator status (research credits count towards this minimum).
  2. Those with a master's in other fields can earn a Master of Science in BME at UW-Madison; only 7 credits of coursework will be waived in this case. 
  3. All students with a prior master's will still need to complete the Qualifying Exams and Preliminary Exam but may be able to do so at an accelerated pace.
  4. Master's degree credits earned five or more years prior to the initiation of the PhD program cannot be used for waivers. 
  5. To apply for waivers, students should develop a list of course equivalents between their chosen track and courses taken at their prior institution. This list, the syllabi for all courses from the prior institution, and a copy of the unofficial transcript should be provided to the Associate Chair of the PhD Degree.

UW-Madison Undergraduate

A student who has completed their bachelor's degree at UW-Madison may transfer 6 credits of coursework with program approval. These courses must be  coursework numbered 400 level or above. Coursework earned five or more years prior to admission to a Ph.D.. degree is not allowed to satisfy requirements. These courses may not be used toward the Graduate School's Minimum Graduate Residence Credit.

UW-Madison University Special

A maximum of 15 credits from the UW–Madison University Special student career may count toward program requirements. Minimum graduate resident credits requirement and minimum graduate degree credit requirement: allowed up to 15 credits numbered 300 or above. Minimum graduate coursework (50%) requirement: allowed up to 15 credits numbered 700 or above. Coursework earned five or more years prior to admission to a Ph.D. program is not allowed to satisfy requirements.

Probation

The Graduate School regularly reviews the record of any student who earned grades of BC, C, D, F, or Incomplete in a graduate course (300 or above), or grade of U in research credits. This review could result in academic probation with a hold on future enrollment or in being suspended from the Graduate School.

  1. Good standing (progressing according to standards; any funding guarantee remains in place).
  2. Probation (not progressing according to standards but permitted to enroll; loss of funding guarantee; specific plan with dates and deadlines in place in regard to removal of probationary status).
  3. Unsatisfactory progress (not progressing according to standards; not permitted to enroll, dismissal, leave of absence or change of advisor or program).

ADVISOR / COMMITTEE

Advisor: Every BME graduate student must have a faculty advisor. A faculty advisor provides the student with academic guidance in their course program and research oversight in their thesis. The advisor must be a primary BME faculty or a BME affiliate; if the advisor is a BME affiliate, the student must identify a primary BME faculty to serve as co-advisor within their first semester. Graduate students should always seek advice from their advisor and/or co-advisor prior to enrolling for courses.

Doctoral Committee: In addition to the committee requirements put forth by the Graduate School, BME has department-specific criteria that Ph.D. students must meet when forming their committees:

  • Committees consist of at least 5 members (one more than the Graduate School's requirement of four)
  • The student's advisor(s) must be on the committee
  • A minimum of two primary BME faculty must be on the committee

  • The Ph.D. committee chair must be a primary BME faculty - either the student's advisor or their co-advisor (if the advisor is an affiliate)

  • At least one member must be from outside of the primary BME faculty.

  • The Ph.D. committee chair must approve the other members of the committee and any committee changes.
  • Students must have a yearly committee meeting after passing the preliminary exam.

CREDITS PER TERM ALLOWED

15 credits

Time Constraints

Students typically complete their degree within six years of entering the program.

Within two years of entering their program, students are required to pass a comprehensive qualifying examination.

Within three years of entering their program, students are required to prepare for a preliminary examination.

Grievances and Appeals

These resources may be helpful in addressing your concerns:

BME Grievance Procedures

If a student feels unfairly treated or aggrieved by faculty, staff, or another student, the University offers several avenues to resolve the grievance. 

Step 1

The student is encouraged to speak first with the person toward whom the grievance is directed to see if a situation can be resolved at this level. Students are also encouraged to talk with their faculty advisors regarding concerns or difficulties, or reach out to the Graduate Student Services Coordinator or Associate Chair of BME Graduate Advising for additional assistance. These activities do not rise to the level of a formal grievance; however, the student is encouraged to keep documentation of these interactions as they may be useful if a formal grievance is pursued.

Step 2

Should a satisfactory resolution not be achieved, a formal grievance can be filed with the BME Grievance Committee. To do so, the student contacts the Department Administrator, who will provide the student with the name of the current chair of the Grievance Committee. The student will then contact the Chair of the Grievance Committee, who will reply within seven calendar days. If the grievance is with the current Chair of the Grievance Committee, please let the Department Administrator know and they will identify an alternate committee member to contact. It is advised that grievances are filed within 60 calendar days of the alleged unfair treatment to enable a thorough investigation.

Step 3

If the student does not feel comfortable working through the departmental process, they are encouraged to seek out other campus resources including: 

  • The Assistant Dean for Graduate Affairs in the College of Engineering 
  • The Graduate School 
  • UW Division of Diversity, Equity & Educational Achievement (DDEEA) 
  • McBurney Disability Resource Center 
  • Employee Assistance Office 
  • Ombuds Office
  • University Health Services 

Step 4

At this point, if either party (the student or the person toward whom the grievance is directed) is unsatisfied with the decision of the faculty committee, the party may file a written appeal. Either party has ten working days to file a written appeal to the School/College. For more information, students should consult the College of Engineering Academic Advising Policies and Procedures.

Step 5

Documentation of the grievance will be stored for at least seven years. Significant grievances that set a precedent will be stored indefinitely. The Graduate School has procedures for students wishing to appeal a grievance decision made at the school/college level. These policies are described in the Graduate School’s Academic Policies and Procedures.
