Coursework is offered by BME Area faculty in a wide variety of topics pertinent to Biomechanical Engineering. These courses are categorized as Core Courses and Additional Courses. In addition to these courses, there are a number of Supplemental Courses offered within other areas of the Department of Mechanical Engineering and through other departments. Courses not listed on this page may also be acceptable in a program of study. All courses must be approved by the student's thesis/dissertation supervisor, thesis/dissertation committee, and the chair of the graduate studies committee. The Biomechanical Engineering Area also offers Undergraduate courses in the Undergraduate Technical Option Area.
