These are exciting times for biomedical engineers. As the so-called “baby-boomers” reach 70 years of age next year, we are faced with an older population demographic as well as numerous challenges not yet fully addressed in our field.

The MSBME program (Flyer) is designed to enhance the knowledge of advanced and emerging topics in the field. Lawrence Tech’s signature combination of theory and practice provides you with enhanced knowledge of specialized tools and technologies, the ability to formulate and solve advanced engineering problems, design systems or processes, and evaluate complex systems and newly created knowledge. Our faculty have expertise in biomechanics, tissue engineering, bioMEMS, bioinstrumentation, and medical imaging. They are your partners as you work on applied research and design projects.

Students will take one advanced mathematics and one advanced biology/physiology course, three biomedical engineering courses and one to three additional elective courses to complete the degree (MSBME Flowchart). Your selection of courses from wide spectrum of topics provides the ability to tailor your degree to fit your interests. Finally, you will also have the option to complete either a Master’s Design Project or a Master’s Research Thesis for the capstone experience. Early in the program, you can select a BME faculty member to serve as your adviser and to work with to determine the scope of your Project or Thesis work.

The eligibility for the program is not limited to graduates with a Bachelor’s degree in Biomedical Engineering; interested students from other engineering and science backgrounds are also eligible to enroll in this program. Up to two of the courses may be completed during a dual-enrollment option or transferred from another graduate program (5year dual enrollment).

It is a challenging curriculum. I am confident that each of our students will be up to the task, and I very enthusiastically welcome you. You can find various current activities as well as our faculty interests on our website.
