The program in Medical Engineering is excited to be offering a new Master of Science degree in Medical Engineering (MedE) starting in fall 2018. This 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. Our students will learn in the clinical setting at the WMed Clinics as well as sites throughout Southwest Michigan with collaborating partners Borgess Health and Bronson Healthcare.
Our program faculty are practicing physicians and PhD scientists with years of experience in teaching and research in areas such as industrial engineering, mechanical and aerospace engineering, health systems engineering, biomechanics and biomaterials, biological signal processing, sensors and instrumentation.
