The combined BS in Biomedical Engineering/MS in Industrial and Human Factors Engineering program allows students to earn a BS in Biomedical Engineering and a MS in Industrial and Human Factors Engineering in a total of 5 years. Up to nine (9) semester credit hours of graduate courses at the IHE 6000/7000 level may be double-counted and applied to both the BS and the MS degree requirements.
1) Completion of at least 75 semester credit hours toward the BS degree
2) Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.3
3) No grade lower than a B in any engineering course prior to admission into the combined degree program.
Complete the Combined BS/MS Degree Program application and a graduate program of study.
BSBE Program Educational Objectives:
Wright State’s BME program will produce biomedical engineers who will:
- Objective 1: Engage in a career path in BME or a related field.
- Objective 2: Participate in life-long learning through continuing professional education.
- Objective 3: Work in a team environment, including multidisciplinary teams, and communicate effectively, both in written form and orally.
BSBE Program Learning Outcomes:
- an ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics
- an ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors
- an ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences
- an ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts
- an ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives
- an ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions
- an ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
MSIHE Learning Outcomes:
- Obtain depth in one area of specialization and breadth in complimentary areas.
- Acquire scientific knowledge and research skills to solve problems in their chosen area.
- Prepare for an advanced professional career or further graduate studies.
