Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) Program

The Professional Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) and Graduate Certificate in Bioengineering, administered by the Office of Advanced Engineering Education, are world-class, flexible educational programs designed to advance technical knowledge and career opportunities for working professionals and returning students who want to retool their careers. The requirements are entirely course-based, and courses are available on-campus and online for full-time or part-time study. To learn more about these programs, please visit the Office of Advanced Engineering Education (OAEE).

Students are admitted to the M.Eng. (PMBI) or Certificate (GCEN) programs by the OAEE Director. Admission requirements and application instructions are posted on the OAEE website.

Advising and Registration 

Student services, including orientation, enrollment, and graduation, are provided by OAEE staff to all M.Eng. and Certificate students. Academic advising for students pursuing the Bioengineering option is provided by the Program Director, Dr. Keith Herold. Advising is also provided by Mr. Chris Boyle.

The 30-credit curriculum for the M.Eng. includes 10 three-credit courses. No research or thesis is required for the degree. Students are required to complete the following three core courses:

  • BIOE604: Cellular and Physiological Transport Phenomena
  • BIOE689D: Applications of Biomaterials
  • BIOE689M: Physiology for Bioengineers

Students are additionally required to complete seven elective courses. Recent electives offered are shown in the list below. We typically offer one of the M.Eng. core courses and two dedicated M.Eng. electives each semester. Electives may also be chosen from the BIOE Ph.D. courses and from other departments with permission from your advisor. Permission will be based on a degree plan and on the engineering and biology content of the proposed courses.

  • BIOE689F: Applications of Bioinformatics
  • BIOE689L: Special Topics in Engineering: The Science and Engineering of Biopharmaceuticals
  • BIOE689W: Biomedical Device Development
  • BIOE689X: Special Topics in Engineering: Additive Manufacturing for Bioengineering Applications
  • BIOE689Y: Applications of Tissue Engineering

Registration permissions must be obtained each semester for all courses that you wish to include in your M.Eng. degree. Please contact Dr. Keith Herold for advising.
