the Institute of Biomedical Engineering

 

Brief Introduction

 
Situated in the College of Engineering, the Institute of Biomedical Engineering offers a M.S. program in BME. The program accepts 15 students per year. The number of accepted students will increase parallel with faculty recruitment. We will establish the Ph. D. program and the Ph. D./M.D. program with local medical schools in the future. The students taken in BME are from multi-disciplinary backgrounds, including Chemical Engineering, Material Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Electrical Engineering, Chemistry, Physics, Life Sciences, Medical School, etc. We collaborate with other departments, institutes and research centers on campus in our focus of Macro-/Nanomedicine, Biomaterials, and Cellular Mechanics. The mission of BME is to establish a world-leading class of biomedical-engineering research and closely work with local related industry.

Graduate Requirements

 
Duration: 1~4 years 
Minimum Credits: 32 credits in total (Excluding Dissertation/Thesis credits).  
Pre-Oral: Students should submit a research report and invite thesis committee to a pre-oral defense before drafting their dissertation. The research report must be approved by the thesis committee. After completing the pre-oral defense, students should submit evaluation forms to NTHU BME office. Oral Exam/Thesis Defense: Students can take the oral exam 6 months after passing the pre-oral. Regarding applying for the oral exam, students should submit an exam application form 2 weeks before oral exam. The exam committee should consist of 3-5 professors (assistant professor and above including thesis adviser and co-adviser from student’s registered university). Chair of the committee will be nominated by the committee members . The committee will grade the candidates based on the content of the thesis and the performance of the oral exam.
