Program Description

The School of Biological and Health Systems Engineering faculty offer a graduate program leading to the MS in biomedical engineering.

Areas of study include:

  • biomaterial
  • biomedical imaging
  • molecular, cellular and tissue engineering
  • neural engineering
  • rehabilitation engineering
  • synthetic and systems biology

Biomedical engineering offers both thesis and applied project master's degrees to those students who meet the criteria for successful graduate study.

Biomedical engineering offers a joint BSE and applied project MS in the biomedical engineering degree program. The program allows up to nine credit hours of graduate-level course work taken as technical electives during the senior year to be applied toward the undergraduate and graduate degrees.
