International Accelerator Program

Biomedical Engineering (ME/MS)

Design biomedical devices, conduct innovative healthcare research and solve problems using a combination of engineering and medicine.

Improving Human Health

The Master of Biomedical Engineering program builds deep technical skills through advanced coursework that uniquely combines engineering and biology. You will also learn important business skills by choosing the project management, entrepreneurship or technical track.

Research and study areas includes:

  • Biomechanics
  • Tissue engineering
  • Drug development and delivery
  • Biomonitoring and Biomeasurements
  • Biomaterials

Students have the option of either an ME (Master of Engineering) or MS (Master of Science) degree. Pursuing an MS degree requires completing a thesis.
