The interdisciplinary master's degree program in biomedical engineering combines core coursework with focused areas of proficiency that allow students more in-depth exposure to areas of particular interest. The program's introductory course is team-taught by biomedical engineering faculty from a range of disciplines, and outside lecturers are invited to give students a broad exposure to the field.
You can choose from two degree options:
Both programs require students to complete core coursework as well as classes in three focal areas.
One of the strengths of our program is the wide range of specializations students can choose from. Students must choose three areas of proficiency from the list below, with at least one coming from the area of life and medical sciences and one from engineering and physical sciences. Proficiency will be assessed based on coursework (typically two semesters at the graduate level) and a comprehensive exam.
Your advisory committee must approve your areas of proficiency to ensure combinations of coursework that provide an optimum background for your sub-specialty and support your proposed research interests. Possible areas are listed below:
