Professional Master of Engineering in Bioengineering Degree Program

The Department of Bioengineering offers 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 and are trained to find creative solutions to complex, multi-level systems problems. The program can be a stepping stone for those looking to advance their career or to transition to an engineering-focused career in healthcare.

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 on to 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 University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign's Grainger College of Engineering 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.

It is available both as a one-year on-campus program, as well as a flexible fully online program. For more details about the M.Eng. in Bioengineering on-campus program, visit http://bioemeng.illinois.edu. Details about the flexible online M.Eng. program can be found here.
