Biomedical Engineering

We offer a Doctor of Philosophy in Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, which provides students with advanced training in the interdisciplinary application of engineering design process steps, methods paradigms, technologies and devices to solve challenges in medicine and the life sciences.

Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology

The Biomedical Engineering faculty participate in two related graduate programs. Masters and Doctoral degrees in Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology (BMEBT) are offered jointly by the University of Massachusetts campuses at Boston, Dartmouth, Lowell, and Worcester.

Work Environment

The faculty in the Biomedical Engineering Department also participate in graduate programs in two areas related to occupational safety and health: Occupational Safety and Ergonomics (OS/E), and Occupational Epidemiology (OccEpi). In each area, a few graduate students each year are supported by a Work Environment Training Program Grant (TPG) funded by the U.S. National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). TPG trainees receive tuition, fees, and a stipend while they are enrolled as full-time students. *
