Master of Science in Bioengineering
The Master of Science in Bioengineering (M.S.Bio.E.) program offers students interdisciplinary education and research opportunities in bioengineering and engineering applications in related healthcare fields. The program offers concentrations in Biomechanics, Biomaterials, and Bioelectronics. Research in Biomaterials includes wear of ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene, polymer chemistry, and interfacial chemistry. Research in Biomechanics includes computer-aided design of composite biomaterials, mechanical properties of orthopedic implant materials, design of orthopedic implants, and modeling of biomaterial behavior.
Graduates with the M.S.Bio.E. are employed in a variety of biomedical industries ranging from device manufacturers to design engineering. Other possibilities include careers in government, either in regulatory agencies or with the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office. Students who complete an M.S.Bio.E. with a thesis are prepared to enter a doctoral program.
The program offers research opportunities in collaboration with faculty in the College of Science and Technology and the School of Medicine.
In addition to submitting an application with the required supporting material, other admission requirements include:
1. An undergraduate engineering degree in engineering, from an ABET-accredited or equivalent institution. Students with a strong background in physical sciences, biology, and mathematics may also be considered for admission.
2. At least a 3.0 (on a 4.0 scale) undergraduate GPA
3. A minimum score of 450 verbal, 650 quantitative, and 4.5 analytical on the GRE
