Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering

A Master of Science (MS) provides students with a combination of coursework and research training. This degree is appropriate for skill building and establishing technical leadership. Although most students feel they are required to receive an MS before applying to a PhD, this is not the case. In fact, students with an end goal of receiving a PhD are encouraged to apply directly to the PhD program at Texas A&M University. The Master of Science curriculum at the Biomedical Engineering Department is designed to develop new understanding through research and creativity. This degree requires a thesis.

The Master of Science program in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Texas A&M University is based in building fundamental research skills and content knowledge to prepare engineers to enter various careers ranging from research and development to medical device design to a doctorate and academic career. A custom coursework plan is created for each student based on their goals, interest, and current expertise and knowledge to best prepare them for their desired career path.

Students admitted into this program must have a bachelor’s degree in engineering or an equivalent field (leveling courses may be required if coming from a dissimilar background).
