The Graduate Certificate in Biomedical Engineering program offers students and professionals the opportunity to further their knowledge with advanced study in the growing area of biomedical engineering. The program is designed to provide well-rounded instruction in several key facets of biomedical engineering. Those who complete the program receive the Advanced Engineering Certificate in Biomedical Engineering from Old Dominion University and a letter of recognition from the Batten College of Engineering and Technology. Courses taken for the certificate program may later be applied to the Master's or Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering.
This program allows you to take graduate courses in Biomedical Engineering without making a large commitment.
If you are later accepted into the ME, MS, or PhD program, the credits you earned in the Certificate program can be transferred to your graduate degree.
This course covers the design of modern biomedical instruments including select diagnostic, assistive, therapeutic, prosthetic, imaging, and virtual devices and systems. Techniques for mechanical, electrical, and chemical sensor and transducer design; stimulation and measurement; data acquisition; digital signal processing; and data visualization will be examined.
The first of a two-course series covering human physiology and pathophysiology, with an emphasis on quantitative modeling, simulation, and analysis of the function of cells, organs, and systems. This course focuses on cellular physiology, including homeostasis, membrane ion channels, excitability, calcium dynamics, and intercellular communication.
The second course of a two-course series covering human physiology and pathophysiology with an emphasis on quantitative modeling, simulation, and analysis of the function of cells, organs, and systems. This course focuses on systems physiology, including the heart, respiration, muscle, kidneys, and the endocrine system. Prerequisites: BME 721 or BME 821.
Students entering the Certificate program in Biomedical Engineering should meet the minimum university admission requirements (Graduate Admission)
Prospective students must complete the application available on the BME website and submit to Dr. Christian Zemlin, BME graduate program director. The application will be reviewed to ensure the applicant meets the minimum qualifications and a program of study will be developed with the graduate program director. Students holding a bachelor's or graduate degree in any engineering, mathematics, science, or health-related discipline are encouraged to inquire about the program and apply.
Estimated rates for the 2021-22 academic year. Rates are subject to change. Anyone that is not a current Virginia resident will be charged non-resident rates. That includes international students.
