The Master of Science degree in Bioengineering, offered by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, provides both a terminal professional degree for students to enter the biotechnology and medical device industries as well as preparation for further study in bioengineering leading to the Doctor of Engineering or Ph.D. degree. Applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree in an engineering field with a strong grounding in physics and mathematics. The degree program offers three tracks in biomechanics, biomaterials, and bioinstrumentation as described below.
The student’s program will be prepared in conference with and approved by the bioengineering graduate adviser. Students take a “core” of courses required for their specialization, and additional courses and electives.
Students without prerequisites for the required courses may need to take additional courses outside the 30 units needed for the degree.
All requirements for the master's degree coursework must be completed within six consecutive calendar years after initial registration.
