Master of Science In Biomedical Engineering

If the idea of using scientific information to design useful products to improve human life thrills you, then you may want to build a career in biomedical engineering. In brief, biomedical engineering is a multidisciplinary field that involves the biological or medical application of engineering principles or engineering equipment.

Career-focused learning

It’s an incredibly dynamic field, with almost unlimited promise for the treatment of health conditions, and there’s no better place to enter it than in the hands-on, student-centered, and career-focused learning environment of our master’s program in biomedical engineering.

Explore all of the fascinating focus areas

The 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.

Licensure and Certification Information

Generally, one of the requirements to become a licensed Professional Engineer (PE) includes a having an earned undergraduate degree from an ABET-accredited program. Please note that as a master’s-level program this is not designed to, and is not sufficient to, meet the educational requirements for PE licensure. Individuals with non-engineering undergraduate degrees, degrees in disciplines outside of engineering, or international undergraduate degrees should contact the State where you intend to seek licensure to learn more about the PE licensing requirements. While you are able to submit your education credentials to NCEES for review, there is no guarantee that the M.S. degree will qualify you to be able to take the FE exam, the first step toward engineering licensure.

The University’s M.S. Biomedical Engineering program

  • Our curriculum does not meet the educational requirements for PE licensure in AL, AS, AK, AZ, AR, CA, CT, CO, DE, DC, FL, GA, GU, HI, ID, IL, IN, IA, KS, KY, LA, ME, MD, MA, MI, MN, MS, MO, MP, MT, NE, NV, NH, NJ, NM, NY, NC, ND, OH, OK, OR, PA, PR, RI, SC, SD, TN, TX, UT, VA, VT, VI, WA, WV, WI, and WY.

NOTE: If you have an earned bachelor’s degree from an ABET-accredited program, that earned degree could provide a pathway to the PE exam. The University offers six undergraduate engineering programs accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.
