The Master of Science degree in Medical Engineering (MedE) is an interdisciplinary graduate-level training program for engineers and quantitative scientists interested in creating new medical devices or processes to improve healthcare.
This two-year program is focused on the interface between the traditional disciplines of medicine and engineering where exciting advances in medical devices technology and innovative procedures are occurring.
MedE students will have opportunities to interact with engineers, clinicians, surgeons, residents, nurses, medical technologists, and business and regulatory experts. You will be expected to attend classes during the day and evening.
During the first year, you will select a specialty track that best matches your career goals: Biomechanics and Biomaterials; Biological Signal Processing and Instrumentation; or Healthcare Systems Engineering.
As the capstone to the program, all students will complete either a thesis or a medical engineering design project. This final capstone will immerse you in a clinical setting giving you the opportunity to apply the knowledge and skills learned to improve healthcare. Clinical settings include WMed Clinics as well as sites throughout Southwest Michigan with collaborating partners Borgess Health and Bronson Healthcare.
