The Department of Biomedical Engineering - Graduate Programs 2018

MSc in Biomedical Engineering.

The Department offers two tracks toward an MSc in Biomedical Engineering.

 

Prerequisites

New students must pass all required courses before admission to the program, based on their BSc studies and the approval of the Head of the MSc program.

 

  1. Research Track

Requirements for an MSc in this Track include:

Requirements for the degree in this Track:

  • Completing courses for a minimum total of 24 credit points in accordance with the curriculum, with a minimum grade average of 75
  • Writing a final thesis – equal to at least 12 hours, in compliance with the Faculty's Regulations for Advanced Degrees - MSc
  • Participation in a minimum of 14 departmental seminars

 

  1. Final Project Track

This Track targets students with a B.Sc. in Engineering, the Exact Sciences, the Life Sciences and Medicine or Computer Science (external students only).

 

Requirements for the degree in this Track:

  • At least 36 credit points in accordance with the curriculum, with a minimum grade average of 75
  • A project for 3 credit points*
  • Participation in a minimum of 8 departmental seminars

 

For a detailed description of study stages, conditions for continuing on to the next year, requirements at each stage and conditions for advancement to the Regular Studies stage, please see the M.Sc. Regulations.

 

Stages of study program:

 

  • In general, M.Sc. studies at the Faculty of Engineering comprise two stages: First - Accumulative Studies, and second – Regular (Full) Studies. Fulltime students are admitted directly to the Regular Studies stage. M.Sc. candidates requiring supplementary studies are admitted to a supplementary program.
  • The Accumulative Studies stage must be completed within a maximum of three academic years. During the Accumulative Studies, students must take a minimum of three courses per year.
  • Students in the stage of Accumulative Studies must pass all mandatory courses required by the department (including repetition after failing, if needed) no later than their fourth semester of studies. Therefore it is advisable to take all mandatory courses in the first year, allowing any needed repetitions by the end of the second year.
  • Courses in the Accumulative Stage must be completed with a minimum grade average of 70. In addition, a passing grade is required in all mandatory courses required by the Department.
  • An Accumulative Studies student advanced to Fulltime Studies becomes a Regular Student.
  • In each Track, at least 25% of the courses in the curriculum must be taken in the status of Regular Student.

 

Mandatory courses – the curriculum includes both mandatory courses and elective departmental courses. A student may take an elective course if he has fulfilled the prerequisites and obtained the supervisor's permission.
