Master’s of Science and Engineering Program
The Master’s degree program in the Department of Biomedical Engineering is designed for students who wish to pursue careers in research and development, academics, or medicine.
The Master’s degree program prepares students to pursue careers in research and development, or as a step toward PhD or MD / PhD education.
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 only), students have the option to complete the MSE degree in one year of coursework only through one of the following focus areas:
- Biomedical Data Science
- Computational Medicine
- Genomics and Systems Biology
- Imaging & Medical Devices
- Translational Cell & Tissue Engineering
For medical students, residents, and clinical fellows, the BME department’s MSE program also offers the AI in Medicine focus area to provide advanced training in data science, computational analysis, and artificial intelligence:
The department’s Biomedical Design Studio provides a premiere work space and resources for students to brainstorm, design, and develop prototypes for solutions to real-world clinical and global health challenges.
