M.Eng. Degree Program

Designed for those looking for a stepping stone to technical and managerial careers in the healthcare industry, our professional master’s degree program combines the strengths of The Grainger College of Engineering and the Gies College of Business at the University of Illinois. Graduates are equipped with bioengineering technical skills and big-picture business perspective—trained to find creative solutions to complex, multi-level systems problems.

The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Bioengineering is a professional, non-thesis master’s degree program designed for industry-bound professionals who seek to advance their technical breadth and depth in fields related to bioengineering, while developing a fundamental understanding of key business concepts. It bridges the skills gap by delving into greater technical depth than is possible in an undergraduate program. The on-campus program is designed to be completed in the Fall and Spring semesters, while the online program offers flexibility towards degree completion.

This rigorous program will provide students with the advanced technical knowledge in bioengineering and a core transcriptable concentration:  Bioinstrumentation and General Bioengineering.  Each concentration will have a core set of requirements that meet the minimum requirements for the M.Eng. in Bioengineering degree.

The Bioinstrumentation and General Bioengineering concentrations are also available under the online M.Eng. in Bioengineering degree program.
