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:
- Tissue engineering
- Drug development and delivery
- Biomonitoring and Biomeasurements
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.
