Upon entry into any graduate program in the Richard and Loan Hill Department of Biomedical Engineering, students must have completed Calculus 1 through 3 (or equivalent), Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra.

If you are considering master’s-level study at UIC, our MS programs overview booklet is a great place to begin. If you are interested in doctoral study, start here.
