Master of Engineering in Biomedical Engineering

The Master of Engineering (MEng) program in Biomedical Engineering offers a flexible curriculum that equips students for success in industry by tailoring training toward the biomedical device product life cycle. Students in the program can further their engineering education for the medical device industry with the aim of:

  • entering the medical device industry,
  • changing their careers to the medical device industry, or
  • enhancing their technical and management skills.

Through the program, students are enabled with the real-world skills needed to enter the medtech industry and solve critical engineering challenges/business interface challenges in health care. They collaborate with industry professionals and clinicians to identify unmet needs, engineer technologies that address these needs, and develop paths-to-market strategies for these technologies. 

Most students admitted into this program have a bachelor’s degree in engineering or an equivalent field. However, if the degree is not in engineering the flexible curriculum can accommodate non-engineering students with leveling courses. 

The program includes a mandatory industry or technology translational immersion experience providing students the opportunity to receive specialized training through:

  • industry internships/externships, or
  • translational research with faculty focusing on product research and development, testing, manufacturing, and entrepreneurship), or
  • clinical innovation with collaboration with clinical partners. 

Our students graduate with real-world professional skills spanning the medical device and healthcare product life cycle, covering important topics such as problem/needs definition, requirements development, technology assessment/intellectual property review, design and engineering, advanced manufacturing, risk analysis, design verification and validation, quality engineering, regulatory and reimbursement strategies, clinical engineering, market analysis/assessment.
