Graduate Academics in Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering graduate degree offerings provide you with research opportunities of great variety and scope. They also offer an unusual receptivity to different kinds of research interests, from the most immediate and practical to the highly theoretical.

The department offers programs in the emerging field of biomedical engineering, as well as a new program in bioengineering. Faculty and students collaborate on joint educational and research programs. The close proximity of these disciplines encourages cooperation, and provides access to equipment and expertise not usually available within a single department.

In addition to the degree programs, the biomedical engineering department currently offers a "mini-graduate" program leading to the Certificate of Special Study in Bioengineering (requires an undergraduate engineering degree in a discipline other than biomedical engineering).

You’ll be able to both build your professional network in nearby New York City — a global hub for pharmaceutical, medical research, and technology — and also explore career opportunities in New Jersey’s booming medical and pharmaceutical industries.

Lectures and Seminars

The department periodically invites a preeminent scientist for a sequence of informal talks and formal lectures. Awareness of recent developments in one's field is an important component of professional development. Therefore, attendance at seminars is required of all graduate students enrolled full-time in degree programs, and all doctoral students. Visit the department home page for a list of upcoming seminars and events.

I was an Innovation and Entrepreneurship doctoral fellow. In the I&E program they encourage you to think bigger and do more with your research. – Vrajeshri Patel, Ph.D. Biomedical Engineering

Research and Teaching

The Department of Biomedical Engineering’s wideranging, flexible graduate degree and certificate programs in bioengineering and biomedical engineering empower career success in the biotechnology, pharmaceutical, medical device, and life sciences industries, as well as in academic, research, clinical and regulatory institutions. Department graduates are well-prepared to further their studies in medical, dental, veterinary and other professional schools.

An entrepreneurial culture fosters the investigation of new technologies from concept to commercialization, with a focus on nanotechnology and on advancing biomedical technology and healthcare delivery. You’ll collaborate with our visionary, interdisciplinary faculty members and leading industry research partners to develop, test, and model new devices in more than a dozen state-of-the-art laboratories, including Stevens’ university-wide Center for Healthcare Innovation, which focuses on drug discovery and tissue engineering. Design-driven programs give you the tools you need to meet your professional goals — and assume leadership roles — in dynamic fields ranging from tissue engineering to bioinstrumentation.
