The master’s degree program prepares students to pursue a variety of careers in research, industry, consulting, government, and more. Many of our students also continue their education through PhD or MD/PhD programs. Students are provided theoretical instruction in the traditional engineering disciplines, given exposure to specialized biomedical engineering topics, and have the opportunity (through the “thesis track” degree option) to participate in supervised research projects. In addition to the thesis track, which typically takes two years to complete (one year of coursework plus one year of research), students have the option to complete the MSE degree in one year through coursework specializing in one of seven focus areas.
Medical students, residents, and clinical trainees are eligible for the AI in Medicine focus area. GRE scores are not required for these candidates. Because medical trainees come from diverse educational backgrounds, the AI in Medicine curriculum provides the flexibility required to meet individualized needs.
