The Master of Engineering degree is designed for students who would like to advance their knowledge and expertise in biomedical engineering. The program requires completion of 10 three-credit courses: two core courses, a physiology course, and seven elective courses. The seven elective courses are chosen to meet the student's career objectives. The program is intended to broaden students' knowledge of the field in preparation for the biomedical technology industry or a PhD program.
Biomedical Engineering is a highly multidisciplinary, application-oriented field. Students are encouraged to pursue research projects in one of the many cutting-edge research labs across campus. Opportunities are also available with local clinical, research and industry partners, including Eastern Virginia Medical School, Sentara, and the nearly 20 institutions and companies that comprise Bioscience Hampton Roads.
Biomedical engineering is a fast growing occupation according to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Biomedical engineers design the next generation of systems and treatments that will advance the quality of life for patients. They develop medical devices, materials, and computer models that detect and treat disease. Biomedical engineers are responsible for the creation of artificial organs, automated patient monitoring, blood chemistry sensors, advanced therapeutic and surgical devices, application of expert systems and artificial intelligence to clinical decision making, design of optimal clinical laboratories, medical imaging systems, computer modeling of physiological systems, biomaterials design, and biomechanics for injury and wound healing, among many others.
There are a wide variety of job opportunities in fields such as:
The Master of Engineering program requires completion of 10 three-credit courses: two BME fundamentals courses, a graduate physiology course, and seven technical electives. The seven technical electives should be chosen to meet the student's career objectives.

The Master of Athletic Training program consists of 60 credit hours which are inclusive of the latest research, knowledge, and techniques, as well as all required NATA Athletic Training Education Competencies in the following areas:
The program is designed to provide structured didactic (classroom) and supervised practice experiences to prepare a student for an entry-level position in athletic training. Didactic courses are sequenced and integrated to maximize student learning. The purpose of supervised practice courses is to provide a structured clinical experience in which to prepare for professional practice and engage in professional socialization.
Throughout the Master of Athletic Training program, supervised practice courses provide direct patient care opportunities for a variety of injuries and patient populations including contact (high risk) and non-contact sports, male and female patients, upper extremity and lower extremity injuries, sport and non-sport settings, and general medical conditions.
Students gain clinical experience in the following settings:
In all clinical rotations, students are supervised by BOC certified and Oklahoma licensed athletic trainers. Most students work one on one with their preceptor in the clinical setting.
Athletic training students also gain experience with emergency situations and general medical conditions through clinical simulation scenarios which utilize METIMan, a high fidelity human patient simulator, in our simulation center.
