Because the M.S. degree requires the time and frequently the resources of a faculty mentor to be available in order to adequately execute the research component of the degree, the BME Department will admit candidates who not only have the credentials suitable for this degree but for which a department faculty member consents to serve as the candidate’s research mentor.
