The Registrar rolled out the new version of Patriot Web Registration features. Here is a link to help guide you through the new registration process:
IMPORTANT: Please read attached notes for registration!
SPRING 2020 Registration: Departmental Controls
will be on the following classes BENG 214, BENG 230, BENG 241, BENG 320, BENG 330/331, BENG 370/371, BENG 420,
meaning you won’t be able to register until we officially lift the controls. This is to prevent students to register without the necessary prerequisites since most grades post in winter break. Controls will be lifted Monday,
January 6th at 10 am. Students who need any of these classes to graduate
in Spring 2020 email me for an override.
BENG 240 is only for students following the new 2019 curriculum, BENG 341 only for students following any curriculum BEFORE fall 2019. Both classes are cross-listed.
Winter 2019 Graduates:
Important information about timelines and the entire graduation process can be found at
Spring 2020 Graduates: Make sure to make an appointment with Claudia Borke to go over degree audit and classes BEFORE Spring registration.
and MATH 214
need to be passed with a B- and above in the department of bioengineering.
Consider becoming a member of the national
Biomedical Engineering Society. Only $30/ year for student
membership. To become a member of our local chapter please email Holly To, our BMES president -
[log in to unmask]. This is an opportunity to mingle with BIOE students, network, go to conferences, help , fundraise and have fun. You need to provide Holly with your BMES membership number and expiration date.
Gowns for Grads:
To offer some financial relief, Mason has created the Gowns for Grads Program to make regalia available for our students who are unable to purchase regalia on their own. If you
are a first-generation student, low income, Pell Grant recipient, Stay Mason recipient, affected by the furlough, or cannot afford regalia right now due to financial difficulties, then this program is for you!
Caps and gowns that are provided by the program to students must be returned to the program after the spring ceremonies. Gowns are borrowed on a first come, first served basis.
For more information and access to the application:
Applications are reviewed three times a semester throughout the application period. Below are the deadlines for application submission and students will be notified of their status
with the program a week after each deadline:

REU in Nanotechnology for Biology and Bioengineering
Students majoring in the STEM fields participate in research projects in the exciting and rapidly growing area of nano-biotechnology, a place where biology, medicine, and
nanotech meet. Students receive hands-on graduate level laboratory research experience and guidance from faculty and graduate student mentors.
Rosetta Commons REU: A Cyberlinked Program in Computational Biomolecular Structure & Design
Interns in this geographically-distributed REU program have the opportunity to participate in research using Rosetta Commons software. The Rosetta Commons software suite includes
algorithms for computational modeling and analysis of protein structures. It has enabled notable scientific advances in computational biology, including de novo protein design, enzyme design, ligand docking, and structure prediction of biological macromolecules
and macromolecular complexes.
Sstudy abroad course that will be offered for the second time in
Summer 2020, ENGR 398 – Applied Engineering in Germany. This course satisfies the Mason Core Global Understanding requirement and since it runs during the summer, shouldn’t affect anyone’s time to graduation.
