Many biomedical engineers, particularly those in research labs, need a graduate degree. The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering provides students and practicing engineers with the theoretical and practical experience needed to succeed.
After completing your degree, you will be able to:
- Develop and utilize the fundamentals of cutting-edge BME technologies
- Exhibit a broad understanding of existing BME research fields
- Demonstrate leadership in team-based multidisciplinary collaborations
- Design, conduct and present a BME research project
- Gain and apply knowledge in advanced BME topics and related laboratory techniques
- Display appropriate professional behavior and principles of ethical conduct
- Obtain technical knowledge and experience in engineering management, marketing and other entrepreneurial activities relevant to BME
