A Professional Degree

Customized Curriculum

The Master of Engineering (MEng) degree in Biomedical Engineering is an individually designed professional master’s degree program for students who are focused on a career in the medical device and technology field. This flexible program can be completed in as little as two semesters of full-time study, but part-time options are available.

Clinical Immersion

Our students are clinical observers in a participating specialty at Boston Medical Center, where they perform 50-100 hours of observations. They then develop a medical device to solve one of the clinical challenges they identified.

Practical Skills

Students in the MEng program develop deep technical skills through advanced biomedical engineering courses and learn about product development, intellectual property and commercialization.

Required Coursework

Applying

Students are strongly encouraged to apply by the January 15 deadline in order to be considered for tuition scholarships.

The GRE is not required from applicants to all master’s programs (except LEAP) who have earned, or will earn, a 4-year degree from a U.S. institution. It will not negatively impact evaluation of your application if you do not submit these scores. We encourage students of limited means to apply for an application fee waiver.
