Biomedical Engineering Innovation (BMEI) is a fully online course offered to high school students since 2019. It is based on an undergraduate introductory biomedical engineering course that has been offered at Johns Hopkins University. This hands-on, lab-based course is designed to help students develop the skills to think and solve problems like engineers.
Please see the Eligibility Requirements page for the pre-requisites.
Yes! Students are eligible to receive a JHU transcript with 3 college credits if they complete the course with a final grade of an A or a B. Students receiving college credit should contact the JHU Office of the Registrar to request that a transcript be delivered to their home and/or institutions of their choice.
To be eligible to receive an A or B in the course, students must have attended regularly and completed all major labs and assignments.
Students who actively participate in the course but do not earn an A or B in the course will receive a Certificate of Completion.
Biomedical Engineering Innovation is only offered as an online course.
Students will interact with their instructional team and classmates using Blackboard and MS Teams. There will be both synchronous and asynchronous activities. Students enrolled in the online course will receive a lab kit in the mail with materials needed to complete various lab activities.
This course is largely asynchronous. Weekly office hours will be held on different days and times so that students from various time zones will be able to participate at least once a week. Additionally, all office hours are recorded and shared so students may access these at any time.
To participate in the online course, students will need to have access to reliable internet. We realize that issues arise from time-to-time and would encourage students to relay intermittent issues to their instructors.
The due dates for course materials will be posted on Blackboard and in the course schedule.
Admission to the Explore Engineering Innovation Program or the Biomedical Engineering Innovation Program does not automatically entitle students for admission into the undergraduate program at Johns Hopkins University.
