The Biomedical Engineering master's program is a highly interdisciplinary course of study that provides students an opportunity to focus on several biomedically relevant topics, including tissue engineering, biological delivery, or the interaction of biomaterials with mammalian tissues.
As a student in the Tufts Biomedical Engineering program, you will find an exceptional academic experience, distinguished by close faculty interactions that will propel you from graduate study to your career. Students graduate from Tufts ready to advance in the ever-changing field of biomedical engineering.
Master's degrees require a minimum of 30 credits and the fulfillment of at least 10 courses at the 100-level or above with grades of S (satisfactory) or at least a B-.
The School of Engineering's Graduate Cooperative Education (Co-Op) Program provides students with the opportunity to apply the theoretical principles they have learned in their coursework to real-world engineering projects. Gain up to six months of full-time work experience, build your resume, and develop a competitive advantage for post-graduation employment. Learn more about the Co-Op Program.
The booming biomedical industry demands skilled professionals whose expertise can cross traditional boundaries of science and engineering. Companies are seeking engineers who understand the medical uses of diagnostic imaging instrumentation, who have training in tissue engineering, or who are well-versed in biomaterials to design artificial joints.
Applicants to the graduate program are expected to have a degree at the level of bachelor or master in engineering or basic/applied/health sciences. Requirements include a basic knowledge of biology, math through ordinary differential equations, and some basic engineering courses (for example, fluid mechanics, properties of materials, thermodynamics, circuit theory).
Students who do not meet all requirements may be admitted into the program pending the successful completion of courses aimed at the fulfillment of the requirements. Tufts will offer the opportunity for students accepted into the graduate program to attend courses specifically designed to provide appropriate background in areas such as biology, mathematics, circuit theory, chemical engineering, etc.
