Professional Master of Engineering in Bioengineering Degree Program

The Department of Bioengineering offers a one-year, non-thesis, professional Master in Engineering (M.Eng.) in Bioengineering degree. The curriculum integrates technical skills development with an understanding of business fundamentals. Graduates are equipped with technical skills and big-picture business perspective – trained to find creative solutions to complex, multi-level systems problems.

Reflective of the interdisciplinary nature of the field of bioengineering, students who have graduated from the Master of Engineering program have pursued various careers. Many have gone onto work in industry, while others have continued to pursue further advanced degrees (MD, PhD, MS, etc.).

The M.Eng. in Bioengineering degree is offered through the world-renowned College of Engineering at Illinois and includes a choice of one of three transcriptable concentrations: bioinstrumentation (with special focus on medical imaging devices), computational genomics (with focus on bioinformatics, genomic computational modeling and big data wrangling), and general bioengineering.

An online format of this program is currently being developed, and we are not accepting applications at this time. To be contacted once the online program is available, please email
