The Russ College of Engineering and Technology, in conjunction with the Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, Health Sciences and Professions, and Arts and Sciences, and the Edison Biotechnology Institute, offers a master's degree in biomedical engineering. The program emphasizes research in cellular and biomolecular engineering, biomechanics, and biomedical information processing.
The degree requires 32 semester credit hours, a portion of which are research and thesis hours that culminate in a written thesis. Students must pass an oral defense of the thesis. Courses are divided into four segments:
- Two life science courses selected from a group of 11 offerings
- Two biomedical engineering focus courses selected from a group of 11 offerings
- A set of common experience courses
- A set of technical electives in the student’s research focus area.
Each student works together with his or her advisor and committee to develop an individual course of study. The curriculum has enough flexibility that each individual student can tailor the program to support his or her own unique engineering and scientific interests.
