The M.S. program, built upon the interdisciplinary, collaborative culture of Carnegie Mellon University, provides an ideal opportunity for career advancement in biomedical engineering or transitions from other disciplines into biomedical engineering.
The large degree of flexibility and wide choice of research advisors allow M.S. education to be tailored according to the student's personal goal, from R&D in biotechnology, healthcare, to university faculty. A practicum course provides opportunities for clinical exposure at local hospitals. Students may choose between the traditional Research-Option M.S. program and the accelerated Practicum-Option M.S. program. The latter may further be combined with the Program of Engineering & Technology Innovation Management or Program of Technology Ventures to form a dual M.S. program. Students wishing to enter Carnegie Mellon's Ph.D. program in Biomedical Engineering must reapply and compete with the general pool of Ph.D. applicants
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
