In the Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences master’s programme you are trained at the leading edge of drug-design and fundamental research of new drugs, optimization of existing drugs, and personalised medicine.
Despite major advances in drug-research, many common diseases such as cancers, neurological diseases, cardiovascular disease and other auto-immune diseases, lack effective treatment, or are found incurable. You are trained for a scientific career in drug research and development. Depending on your interest, you can choose from seven specialisations to further extend your scientific training and theoretical background.

The master’s programme of Bio-Pharmaceutical Sciences (BPS) aims to train you in the research area of bio-pharmaceutical sciences and drug research in such a way that you have extensive knowledge and hands-on experience to be able to work independently as a scientific researcher. Moreover, you have a wide range of other career opportunities bio-pharmaceutical industry, science communication, and education.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) at BGU, established 2000, conducts vibrant cutting-edge research across a broad spectrum of fields, led by 10 faculty members. Areas of research include biomedical optics, bioelectronics, biomechanics, biomembranes, biomaterials, medical and tele robotics, neuroscience, biopharmaceutics, and physiological signal processing. The department is equipped with state-of-the-art laboratories and research facilities supported by numerous prestigious academic funds. The department invests considerable efforts in providing students with hands-on experience in laboratory classes that develop engineering skills, particularly in two clusters: Biomedical Signal processing and Biomechanics. Many of the biomedical engineers who graduated from the department now hold key positions, nationally and internationally, in academic institutions and the biomed industry.
The BME Department offers graduate studies towards both M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in Biomedical Engineering. The The M.Sc. degree is typically completed within two academic years (four semesters). The program is research oriented and conducted in the BME laboratories under the guidance of our faculty members. It includes graduate-level coursework and a research thesis that presents the unique scientific contribution of the student. Many of our M.Sc. students qualify for doctoral studies in the Combined Ph.D.t, such that the M.Sc. thesis can also
Applicants to the M.Sc. Program in the BME Department should hold a B.Sc. degree in Biomedical Engineering or in closely related fields from an accredited institution at a minimum GPA of 80/100, as well as have a TOEFL score of at least 85/120 or an equivalent score in an internationally recognized English proficiency exam. The English proficiency requirement is waived for applicants who received their B.Sc. degree in a program taught in English. GRE is recommended but not required. Additionally, prior to applying to the M.Sc. Program, the applicant is expected to contact a potential advisor among the BME faculty, as well as the director of graduate studies for further information.
The research leading to the M.Sc. thesis is conducted throughout the two years of studies. The student is expected to publish and present the research results in leading international journals and conferences. The thesis is evaluated by a scientific committee through a written report and an oral examination.
