Biomedical Engineering (BME) expands traditional engineering expertise to analyze and solve problems in biology and medicine, providing an overall enhancement of health care. Biomedical engineers work with health care professionals to design medical devices and equipment that enhance the quality of life for their patients by applying engineering product and process design strategies to medical problems. The role of biomedical engineers includes multiple levels of involvement ranging from choosing an appropriate "off the shelf" system, to modification of commercial approaches, to the design and development of custom systems. Gannon's M.S. BME program is directed especially toward the application of engineering and technology to increase the functional capabilities and quality of life for people with physical disabilities, as well as the study of materials for biomedical applications.

  • Earn your MS-BME degree in as little as 24 credits with our combined 4+1 programs, or 30 credits after your Bachelor's Degree.
  • MS-BME graduate students can choose 2 tracks specializing in biomechatronics or biomaterials.
  • Rolling admission allows for multiple program start dates.

Crossing Boundaries

Bioengineering naturally evolved from partnerships between engineering and medicine. Today, our faculty and students continually reach across traditional boundaries in education and research. The interdisciplinary scope of our research spans six overarching themes: biomaterials; additive and bio-manufacturing, bio-heat and mass transfer; biomechanics and motion-tracking; bio-robotics and biomimetics; rehabilitation engineering and virtual reality.
