Master of Science

The Master of Science in Bioengineering (M.S.) is a 30-credit-hour program that can be completed in as little as 16 months. The thesis option prepares students to conduct research in bioengineering and includes a 6-credit-hour research requirement. The non-thesis track prepares graduates for employment in bioengineering industries and does not include a research requirement.

M.S. Program

Master of Science - MDR

The Master of Science in Medical Device Reprocessing degree is a 30-credit-hour program with eleven graduate-level courses and an immersion/training experience in research or industry. The yearlong program emphasizes optimizing and validating biomedical technologies to support the safe reuse of medical devices and healthcare products.

B.S. to Graduate Program

Bioengineering undergraduates may begin an M.S./M.ENG degree program while completing their B.S. degree. This provides undergrads a head-start on graduate studies by allowing them to use a limited number of graduate courses to satisfy requirements for both the B.S. and M.S./M.Eng degrees.
