Objective

The MS in Biomedical Engineering (BME) is designed for students with an undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering or related disciplines who seek advanced training or specialization in a specific area of biomedical engineering. For students with an undergraduate degree in Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Chemistry, Biology or other fields of natural or health science who seek to diversify their career opportunities by acquiring an engineering degree. Professional engineers with undergraduate degrees in other disciplines who want to enter the field of biomedical engineering, as well as for students who want to prepare for admission to advanced health-related or other professional programs such as medical school.

The MS program in BME provides students with the technical and intellectual skills required to solve complex problems at the interface of engineering and medicine or biology. Graduates from this program are prepared for successful careers in the biomedical industry, academia, or government (FDA, US Patent Office), or for further study in doctoral or health-related programs.

The interdisciplinary nature of the department and our strong ties with the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine affords students the opportunity to collaborate with clinicians and researchers at several world-renowned research and clinical centers, including the Bascom Palmer Eye Institute, The Miami Project to Cure Paralysis, the Diabetes Research Institute, the University of Miami Ear Institute, the Biomedical Nanotechnology Institute (BioNIUM), the Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center, and the Miami Veterans Administration Research Service.

The main fields of graduate study and research can be divided into three broad areas:

  • biomedical imaging, optics and lasers
  • neural engineering, biomedical signals and instrumentation
  • biomechanics, microfluidics, biomaterials and tissue engineering

Industry Advisory Board

The MS program is informed by an industry advisory board with significant experience in medicine, business, government and technology in collaboration with global industry leaders. To view the MS in Biomedical Engineering Program advisory board,  click here.
