Eligibility Requirements

To be eligible for the online Biomedical Engineering Innovation program:

  1. You must have completed the following prior to starting the course:
    • Algebra 2
    • A class that covered the trigonometric functions.
    • Biology
    • Physics (see note below*)
  2. You must have As and Bs in your high school math and science classes.
  3. You must be a current high school student or recent high school graduate.

*Students need to be comfortable with free-body diagrams, equations of motion, and principles of electric circuits prior to taking the course. We move through the topics quickly and assume students are able to extend upon the pre-requisite knowledge to tackle more challenging problems.


Students who earn an A or a B will earn 3 credits from Johns Hopkins for the course EN.500.130: Biomedical Engineering Innovation. These students are eligible to request a transcript and can request that these credits transfer to another university if they do not enroll at JHU as undergraduates.  The credits awarded by JHU for this BME EI online course are available to count towards your undergraduate degree at JHU.  Credits may be applied towards your total required credits to graduate.
