If the idea of using scientific information to design useful products to improve human life thrills you, then you may want to build a career in biomedical engineering. In brief, biomedical engineering is a multidisciplinary field that involves the biological or medical application of engineering principles or engineering equipment.
It’s an incredibly dynamic field, with almost unlimited promise for the treatment of health conditions, and there’s no better place to enter it than in the hands-on, student-centered, and career-focused learning environment of our master’s program in biomedical engineering.
Explore all of the fascinating focus areas
The program provides you with exciting opportunities to explore multidisciplinary focus areas that address:
- Medical devices such as artificial lungs, replacement heart valves, pacemakers, dental implants, catheters, stents, and hip and knee prostheses
- Biomaterials in medicine (metals, ceramics, polymers, nanomaterials)
- Biomedical Imaging
- Biomedical Instrumentation — for example, biosensors and bioanalytics
- Tissue Engineering
With a biomedical engineering master’s degree from the University of New Haven, you will be superbly prepared to take your place in the field as a competent engineer with skills set sought by the global market and as a researcher capable of independent investigation. You will also have another skill to add to your set— the ability to present results of an independent investigation cogently. In the 21st century, engineers are expected to be comfortable in communicating their ideas and findings. In fact, it has become a must for employers.
Learn from professors who are dedicated to your success.
Our faculty are leaders and innovators in their fields, bringing both deep professional experience and academic rigor to the classroom.
