The Bioengineering (M.S.) program provides a broad engineering and biotechnology curriculum, while offering a focus on a specific engineering track that best fits students' interests and career choices. This combination gives our bioengineering graduates professional flexibility, a distinct competitive advantage in the ever-changing field of bioengineering.
The bioengineering master's program has six tracks:
- Biomechanical Systems and Devices
- Cell and Bioprocess Engineering
- Environmental Biotechnology
- Signals and Systems
The booming biomedical industry demands skilled professionals whose expertise can cross traditional boundaries of science and engineering. Companies are seeking electrical engineers who understand the medical uses of diagnostic imaging instrumentation, biotechnology professionals with training in tissue engineering to develop tissue implants, and mechanical engineers who are well-versed in biomaterials to design artificial joints.
The Bioengineering Certificate program addresses this need through a highly interdisciplinary course of study that allows students to focus on biomedical instrumentation, biomedical optics, biomaterials/biotechnology and tissue engineering or other related areas of study. Courses are taught by faculty in engineering as well as experienced clinical professionals from Tufts' world-renowned health science schools.
