The Biomedical Engineering program uses an integrated and interdisciplinary approach to advance the knowledge of its graduates toward developing an understanding of fundamental issues at the interface of engineering, biology, and medicine.
You will learn about the evolutionary processes focusing on how living things function and how several branches of engineering and science are interconnected in these processes.
It improves human health through cross-disciplinary activities that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. The integration of biology with engineering is of increasing importance in all engineering disciplines.
This program will emphasize to improve your thinking skill on several areas of research and education in tissue regeneration, biomaterials, biologically inspired materials, tissue engineering, physiological measurements, bioelectronics, biomechanics, bioMEMS, wireless communications in cells, biosensing, biorobotics, biosignaling, ergonomics and several associated areas on man-machine interface.
The department offers the opportunity to acquire dual graduate degrees along with the M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering. Candidates for these dual Master’s Degree programs are typically required to complete a total of 48-52 credit hours to satisfy the requirements of two Master’s Degrees. This implies 15-19 credit hours in addition to the 34 hours required for the M.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering.
