Rutgers School of Engineering’s Master of Science (MS) in Biomedical Engineering is a thesis based degree program that provides outstanding graduate level training in six key areas of biomedical engineering and technology: molecular systems; nanosystems and microsystems; tissue engineering and regenerative medicine; biomechanics and rehabilitation engineering; physiologic systems; and bioinstrumentation, biomedical imaging, and neuroengineering. This degree can be a pathway to our doctoral degree program.
With guidance from a world-class faculty in a stateof-the-art facility, students master essential aspects of biomedical engineering practice and research. By providing students with a solid foundation in life science and engineering, as well as opportunities to engage in and conduct original research, the MS in Biomedical Engineering program prepares them for professional advancement in a dynamic, rapidly advancing field.
