Students who wish to further their educations after getting a bachelor’s degree often opt to enroll in master’s programs. Such programs are also required before students can get doctoral degrees. Students with master’s degrees gain specialized knowledge that usually positions them for higher salaries and jobs with more responsibility.

What is a Master in Biomedical Engineering? Biomedical engineering focuses on the analysis and design of solutions in biology and medicine. For example, a biomedical engineer could choose to develop an artificial organ or a device to help a person use his arm again. The overarching goal of such engineering is to enhance the quality and effectiveness of patient care. To this end, higher-level biomedical engineering education involves classroom-based work as well as hands-on, laboratory courses. Students work with fluid and solid mechanics, biomaterials and with biological sciences.

Students reap many benefits from this education. For instance, a master’s degree can qualify a person to lead a research team, and students often further their practical engineering design skills.

Universities worldwide offer programs in biomedical engineering. As a result, the cost of such programs depends on the school. Students should contact colleges for specific information on costs and always thoroughly research programs.

Students who get biomedical engineering degrees have several options. Many go on to dental or medical school (or already have that experience) in order to use practical biomedical applications in patient care. Some obtain law degrees to work as patent attorneys. Biomedical engineers work in hospitals as part of therapy teams and in research laboratories. They also work in manufacturing environments and in business offices.

Biomedical engineering students have the option of taking classes part time or full time. Students with other responsibilities may enjoy the choice of taking online classes, which many universities offer. To get started, search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
