Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering

The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering program (available both on-campus and online via DEN@Viterbi) provides students with a broad background, linking physiology with engineering science, necessary for entering interdisciplinary careers in medical technology or pursuing further graduate studies in a related field.

The 28 unit Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (MSBME) program is designed to be completed in two years or less of full-time study beyond the bachelor of science degree. The Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering can be completed with a thesis, requiring four units of BME 594abz, or without a thesis, requiring coursework only.
