MS in Biomedical Engineering The Biomedical Engineering Department offers Master of Science (MS) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees in biomedical engineering. Our programs are flexible and affordable options for students dedicated to advancing healthcare and medicine through the understanding of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human injury and disease. Our curriculum is highly interdisciplinary, exposing students to faculty from each specialization and fostering theoretical and practical experience from many different perspectives. Funding is offered in the form of teaching, research and graduate assistantship stipends. In many cases teaching assistantships include health insurance and a tuition scholarship. Other funding resources are also available. As one of only 150 biomedical engineering programs in the country, our curriculum is designed to prepare students for academic or industry careers related to medical technology as well as entrepreneurial pursuits in the healthcare field. Other than core classes and electives, master’s students are required to undertake a research thesis project with the guidance of a faculty advisor. Doctoral students are expected to contribute to the advancement of knowledge in their field of study. An accelerated BS + MS degree is also available. Educational Objectives The goal of biomedical engineers is to improve human health through advances in healthcare and medicine. This includes advancing our understanding of prevention, diagnosis and treatment of human injury, disease and the health complications associated with physiologic and sociologic factors such as aging, environment and diet. In this regard, we are living in an exciting time. In the last two decades or so we have witnessed, among numerous achievements, the decoding of the entire human genome, the birth of proteomic methods, the maturation of computerized tomography, dramatic advances in imaging and sensing technologies, the culture of stem cells, and advances in biomaterials that may eventually enable us to engineer tissues and even organs. Altogether, these achievements have dramatically augmented our potential for improving health care. However, addressing how to use these basic science research advances for improved health care represents a major challenge for biomedical engineers of the coming generation. Chronic illness is now a dominant issue in health care, consuming vast sums of healthcare dollars, personnel and facilities usage. This situation will only be exacerbated over the coming decades with the aging of the population. As a result, improvements in our ability to prevent, diagnose, and treat chronic illness, and to do so at reasonable cost, has become a focus of the national healthcare agenda. Accordingly, the goal of the biomedical engineering program at Binghamton University is to prepare graduate engineers to face not only these new 21st century challenges, but also to advance new technologies for better healthcare. Learning and Research Experiences The program provides the student with access to considerable resources, including: The Clinical Science and Engineering Research center with staff to assist in the conduct of clinical trials. Computing clusters for high speed data analysis, modeling, and simulation. Laboratory facilities equipped with state-of-the-art equipment for cell and tissue culture research, genomics research, proteomics research, molecularimaging, as wellasbiomaterials research facilities. Lab animal resources for small animal research. The Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging (S³IP) Center for micro and nano systems engineering. Students enrolled in the program also have the opportunity to collaborate with clinicians practicing at nearby medical centers, including Binghamton General Hospital, Wilson Hospital, the Upstate Medical Center, the Bassett Healthcare Center, and the Guthrie Health Center. The biomedical engineering program offers both master's and doctoral degrees. The scope of each degree is similar, but the depth of study differs. Typically a master's degree is completed in 1 ½ to 2 years. Students complete the core curriculum and electives, and undertake a research project. Doctoral students also complement the core coursework with electives but at the 600 level and conduct in-depth research where they demonstrate a contribution to the advancement of knowledge in their field of study. Doctoral students are also expected to demonstrate an understanding of the development of technologies for the healthcare industry. Thus, in addition to being prepared for academic or industry careers related to medical technology, they will have the background needed to pursue an entrepreneurial role in the healthcare field. To this end, incubator space and technology transfer support are available to students interested in pursuing new ventures. Professional Development Biomedical engineering graduate students have access to resources such as the Clinical Science and Engineering Research Center, state-of-the-art laboratory facilities and the Small Scale Systems Integration and Packaging Center. Incubator space and technology transfer support are also available to students interested in pursuing new ventures. For the graduate seminar that includes the Biomedical Engineering Lecture Series, the department invites several distinguished guest speakers in the field to discuss their research. The curriculum allows students space to explore specialties and orient their research in specific areas of interest throughout their course of study. Past research areas of interest include 3D bioprinting, biomaterials, nanomedicine and stem cells. A local chapter of the Biomedical Engineering Society has also been established. Watson Career and Alumni Connections offers professional advice and services such as interview guidance, cover letter critiques and networking opportunities. After You Graduate Alumni of the program have pursued careers in both the public and private sectors for organizations including the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Graduates have also pursued doctoral positions in acclaimed institutions such as Boston University Medical Center, University of Rochester, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, University of Pennsylvania and Cornell University.
