Graduate Handbook

The Graduate Program Student handbook outlines the policies and procedures for students enrolled in Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering graduate programs. Topics covered include the structure of the department, expectations of faculty and students, the admission process, new and current student information, registration, finances, degree requirements and graduation information, campus resources, and institutional policies and processes. 


This handbook is intended as a supplement to the General Catalog of Georgia Tech and student handbook for the Laney Graduate School at Emory University.  It does not replace nor supersede the materials in these resources.  All BME students are responsible for understanding and complying with all policies and procedures of both Georgia Tech and Emory. 


Questions should be directed via email ( to the BME Graduate Program Manager. The Associate Chair for Graduate Studies, Director of Graduate Training, and directors of the associated degree programs are also key resources.
