Master of Science in Bioengineering Innovation & Design

The Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID), housed within the Department of Biomedical Engineering, is a one-year MSE degree program with a focus on biomedical device design and commercialization of technology.

The Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design one-year master’s program allows students to work closely with physicians at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine to (1) identify clinically relevant problems, and (2) design and build products to solve these problems. This process involves ideation, developing prototypes, researching intellectual property, writing business plans, and presenting designs to fellow students, faculty, and outside advisors. Students who complete this non-research-based graduate program will receive a Master’s of Science in Engineering in Bioengineering Innovation and Design.

Students in the CBID master’s program will strive to design healthcare solutions that will change the lives of people around the world, with a particular emphasis on global health. As such, the program involves international travel to low-resource countries to promote interactions with the end users of these healthcare solutions.

Technology commercialization is another central component of the BME design curriculum. All students will interact with clinical and corporate sponsors to develop their leadership, communication, and marketing skills for future professional success.

CBID master’s students typically work closely with undergraduates in the BME Design Teams course, providing guidance and support throughout the school year.
