For a select number of exceptionally well-qualified students, ODU has established a linked doctoral program that enables students to be admitted directly into the Ph.D. program upon completion of the baccalaureate degree. This program encourages admitted students to work closely with faculty members and pursue a research experience. The student may opt to obtain the master's degree along the way to the doctorate.
Engineering students with GPA >= 3.0 can apply for the BME graduate program through a linked B.S./Ph.D. program
Students can take two graduate courses double counted for the B.S. degree and a graduate degree
No need for a formal application such as reference letters, essay, and GRE scores
For B.S./Master programs, students need only 24 credit hours and can start working with a research advisor during their senior year
Graduates from this major have gone to work at
The first of a two-course series covering human physiology and pathophysiology, with an emphasis on quantitative modeling, simulation, and analysis of the function of cells, organs, and systems. This course focuses on cellular physiology, including homeostasis, membrane ion channels, excitability, calcium dynamics, and intercellular communication.
This course covers the design of modern biomedical instruments including select diagnostic, assistive, therapeutic, prosthetic, imaging, and virtual devices and systems. Techniques for mechanical, electrical, and chemical sensor and transducer design; stimulation and measurement; data acquisition; digital signal processing; and data visualization will be examined.
This course covers the theoretical foundation and application of commonly used techniques in biomedical engineering. Topics include linear algebra, partial differential equations, regression analysis, applied probabilities, multivariate distributions, Bayesian statistics, hypothesis tests, multiple comparisons, ANOVA, solution of non-linear equations, numerical methods and optimization. Programming software will be used to perform simulations and analyze biomedical data. Prerequisites: Graduate status.
Students entering the U.G. & Doctoral program in Engineering Major and Biomedical Engineering should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Undergraduate Admission)
Estimated rates for the 2021-22 academic year. Rates are subject to change. Anyone that is not a current Virginia resident will be charged non-resident rates. That includes international students.
