Explore all of the focus areas

The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (MSBME) program provides you with exciting opportunities to explore multidisciplinary focus areas that address: 

  • Medical devices such as artificial lungs, replacement heart valves, pacemakers, dental implants, catheters, stents, and hip and knee prostheses
  • Biomaterials in medicine (metals, ceramics, polymers, nanomaterials)
  • Biomedical Imaging
  • Biomedical Instrumentation  — for example, biosensors and bioanalytics
  • Tissue Engineering

With a biomedical engineering master’s degree from the University of New Haven you will be superbly prepared to take your place in the field as a competent engineer with skills set sought by the global market and as a researcher capable of independent investigation. You will also have another skill to add to your set— the ability to present results of an independent investigation cogently.   In the 21st century, engineers are expected to be comfortable in communicating their ideas and findings.  In fact, it has become a must for employers.

The MSBME is a 2-year 30/31-credit program and prepares students for positions in biomedical engineering and continued education in biomedical engineering.  It addresses the improvement of human health through a multi-disciplinary approach, where integration of concepts from engineering and mathematics with those in the life sciences provide directed technologies for the advancement of health care.  Students enrolled in the program will address unmet medical needs using knowledge of engineering, biology, chemistry, mathematics, etc.  They will take measurements on and interpret data from living systems, address the problems associated with the interaction between living and non-living materials and systems, work on team projects, and communicate their work orally and in writing.  Graduates of this program will be able to evaluate biomedical engineering literature to identify, analyze, and assess a medical need, design solutions to these problems using multidisciplinary approach, and manage biomedical engineering projects.
