The Master of Science Program prepares students for bioengineering careers in industry, government, or academia.
Starting with the core curriculum, students master the core competencies of bioengineering before progressing onto highly individualized training plans that feature elective course work with research thesis, clinical project, or industry internship options.
Students complete the degree (30 credit hours) in one to two years of fulltime study.
Core: 21 credit hours
Electives: 9 credit hours
Basic Research: Thesis
Clinical Applications: Project
Combining MS in Bioengineering with Another Master's Degree
Students wishing to combine to Master's Degrees that are not part of an approved dual degree program (including the MS in Bioengineering) must be:
- Accepted and concurrently registered in both program; dual MS cannot be earned sequentially because credit from a conferred Master's cannot be applied toward a second Master's, as per the Graduate School Rules.
- Satisfy all requirements of both degree programs.
Up to 15 credit hours of courses may be used to satisfy both programs. However, each program will determine which courses count on a case-by-case basis. Please contact us for advising early if you wish to pursue this option.
