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.
