Master of Engineering in Bioinstrumentation: M.S., M.D./Ph.D. in Bioengineering
Lead the development of innovative medical imaging tools with technical know-how and creative ability through the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, a top 4 College of Engineering program in the world, according to the Academic Ranking of World Universities report.
First and only one of its kind, the Master of Engineering in Bioinstrumentation is an intensive, one-year, on-campus, non-thesis professional master’s degree program.
It is geared to those looking to work in the $24 billion medical imaging device industry by combining rigorous graduate-level engineering coursework with fundamental business and project management training on issues that confront professionals who develop products for biomedical imaging, medical diagnostics, genomics, and tools used in life science research.
The program is designed as a unique discovery experience, offering greater technical depth than is possible in an undergraduate program, while providing the tools you'll need to successfully develop products in multidisciplinary teams. The coursework provides opportunities to become proficient within your technical discipline at the graduate level, and the background to become an effective engineering manager in the medical imaging device field. Students who complete the program should have more technical know-how, business skills, and leadership experience than a traditional entry-level professional.
At Illinois, you’ll delve into the fine points of biometric sensors, imaging technology, and life-changing clinical devices. You’ll also gain the hands-on experience, leadership ability, and unparalleled skill needed to carve out a career in industry.
The Department of Bioengineering also offers traditional research-focused graduate programs, such as MS/PhD and MD/PhD. These programs prepare graduates for highly productive and distinguished careers in research, academia or business.
