Improve human health through cross-disciplinary activities that integrate the engineering sciences with the biomedical sciences and clinical practice. Our program emphasizes research and education in tissue engineering and biomaterials, biosensors and biomedical instrumentation, biomedical optics and imaging, and cardiovascular engineering. Our graduates are prepared to undertake research positions; to succeed in academia, government, and industry; and to grow into positions of leadership.
Accelerate your education, and earn a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering with just two semesters of course work beyond conferment of your Bachelor of Science degree.
The accelerated Master of Science degree plan allows students to begin graduate course work during the fourth year of undergraduate study. By allowing up to six upper-level course credits to be counted toward both the BS and MS degrees, the plan is designed for the completion of both degrees in ten semesters of full-time course work (approximately five academic years).
You have an interest in medicine and a desire to impact lives. The biomedical engineer’s specialty is the ability to understand living systems and predict the body’s interactions with external materials or devices, thereby minimizing the risk of adverse effects. As a biomedical engineer, you will draw upon numerous engineering disciplines to solve complex problems on the front lines of biology, medicine, and research/development.
At Michigan Tech, our mission is to graduate innovative, world-class engineers. Our Senior Design program connects students and industry through open-ended, industrial projects. As a student, you will gain the skills and experience to you launch into a successful career while working with industry partners. Past sponsors have included Boston Scientific, Portage Health, Medtronic, and Pioneer Surgical.
Through Enterprise, you’ll work with other Michigan Tech students from multiple disciplines to find solutions for some of the most intriguing problems in business and industry. You could work directly with organizations like 3M, Ford, IBM Corporation, Kimberly-Clark, the National Science Foundation, and others. In the end, you will have gained on-the-job skills, hands-on experience with world-class equipment and technology, and meaningful connections with industry leaders.
