Biomedical Engineering

Degree Types: MS, PhD

The Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program centers on engineering methods for studying biological and physiological processes and the application of concepts to medical problems.

Research areas include Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine, Imaging and Biophotonics, and Neural Engineering. Graduate study in biomedical engineering is conducted in the Robert R. McCormick School of Engineering and Applied Science, The Feinberg School of Medicine, and The Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago.

The MS-Only program is designed to produce graduates who are qualified to fill positions in research and development or pursue further education. We train individuals to use engineering principles to solve biological and medical problems. This program requires one year of intensive coursework and students are typically admitted without departmental or university funding.

The PhD program provides a solid foundation in engineering and life sciences. It is designed to produce graduates who can lead research and development programs at the highest levels in industry, academia, and national laboratories.
