The Ph.D. is an academic degree that prepares students for careers in teaching and research. A Master's degree is not required for students seeking the Doctoral degree.
The specific requirements are as follows:

b. Biomedical Engineering Domains
One course in three of the four domains, as described in Table 1. Only one (1) of the domain requirements may be satisfied through the com- pletion of a BMEN 3xxx/6xxx domain course
One course in advanced mathematics (e.g., various 6000-level MATH courses)
The student must demonstrate superior performance while completing 48-hours of graduate study with nine in-class “didactic” classes completed
(see Table 3).
