Our Philosophy

Our Master's program is designed to engage you in research that interests you. Biomedical Engineering is a multi-faceted field and we believe that you are best served by being able to focus on the areas of interest most relevant to your desired career paths.

We strive to create an individualized experience for each student.  All of our students work with a faculty advisor who assists you in course selection and degree requirements.  Our department allows students the opportunity to participate in hands-on laboratory research in their state-of-the-art facilities.

Our program is designed to suit students who enter with a research focus in mind, but the flexibility we offer in course selection allows you the opportunity to explore a variety of topics before narrowing into your selection, where you are then able to begin advanced research on your chosen topics. 

The MS degree in Biomedical Engineering positions you to:

  • Become more competitive for laboratory positions in academia or industry
  • Strengthen your skills and knowledge base for Medical or Dental school
  • Continue in a doctoral program in Biomedical Engineering or other engineering and biomedical fields
