The master’s of biomedical engineering is a 12-month professional program that immerses students in the technical, scientific, medical, business, and management aspects of the healthcare industry. The curriculum includes a unique 3-course sequence that allows students to develop and market a medical device, exposing them to the real-world applications of medical technologies. Between the interdisciplinary curriculum, the experiential internship, and the connection to a thriving healthcare community in Portland, graduates will be well prepared to tackle current and future healthcare challenges.
Biomedical engineering is an interdisciplinary field that involves the development of new technologies in healthcare - from managing patient information that aids in decision-making, to improving diagnostic equipment, to designing therapeutic solutions that treat disease and injury. Biomedical engineering directly impacts the quality of human life and requires professionals who are innovative, ethical, and sensitive to the business of healthcare delivery. Biomedical engineering is also a growing field - in 2012, Forbes magazine ranked biomedical engineering as the #1 major in the United States, and the Bureau of Labor Statistics predicts a 62% job growth rate in the biomedical engineering profession from 2012 – 2020.
