M.S. Program

As a graduate student in biomedical engineering, you’ll have the opportunity to explore your specific research interest in cellular and biomolecular engineering, biomechanics, or biomedical information processing in collaboration with our esteemed faculty in the Russ College of Engineering and Technology, the Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, Health Sciences and Professions, and Arts and Sciences, and the Edison Biotechnology Institute.

To graduate, you’ll earn 32 semester credit hours, a portion of which are research and thesis hours that culminate in a written thesis, as well as an oral defense of your thesis. You’ll work with your advisor and committee to develop an individual course of study, capitalizing on the curriculum’s flexibility to tailor the program to support your own engineering and scientific interests.

Course requirements include:

  • 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
