Full Program Description

The interdisciplinary Master of Science program in Bioengineering is designed for students who would like to continue or move their career in the direction of Bioengineering, those who would like to strengthen their academic portfolio prior to applying to medical school, and those working in the biotech industry who would like to strengthen their technical background, broaden future employment opportunities, and/or re-direct their specific expertise.

Bioengineering is a rapidly growing sector of the engineering profession. Approximately 19,400 biomedical engineers were employed in 2012, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, and employment in the field is expected to increase by 27 percent through 2022, much faster than the average across all engineering disciplines. In addition, Master of Science in Bioengineering will provide significant opportunities for student research.

At the master’s level, students will choose from a list of three degree options (Course-only, Research, or ) Project) and they will choose from a list of four concentrations (Bioimaging and Signal Processing, Cell and Tissue Engineering, Biomechanics, and Biomedical Devices).
