Students who have registered for BME 6001 or BIME 6090 are required to attend the seminars. In order to get a pass grade, students should not miss more than two seminars. Students are allowed to compensate for missing up to two Biomedical Engineering program seminars by attending equivalent seminars and submit a 200 words report to Dr. Teja Guda before the last day of the class for the semester.
The objective of this class is to broaden students’ academic horizons, deepen their understanding of one’s own research area, and learn presentation skills.
