Industry-Oriented MS Program Biomedical Engineering Specialized in Medical Device Design

A customer-focused product development curriculum

Each summer, the Center for Medical Technology and Innovation welcomes a new cohort of Master’s students into our program. Our program is crafted to provide students with the essential skills and knowledge necessary for transition into the biomedical industry workforce. At the heart of our mission is a commitment to direct engagement with the customer, most often the surgeon, throughout the entirety of the product development journey.
