Department of Biomedical Engineering

Degrees & Programs

The educational programs in biomedical engineering integrate physical, chemical, mathematical, and computational sciences with engineering principles to study biology, medicine, behavior, and health. Students at all levels of study learn to develop practical applications of scientific knowledge for the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of disease, for patient rehabilitation, and for improving health.

NJIT's Department of Biomedical Engineering is pioneering an innovative approach to education -- a hands-on, studio-based program. Read an article about this new educational initiative. Check out the degree programs and courses offered in biomedical engineering.

BS in Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering students combine a study of fundamental biological and physiological processes with a study of engineering methods.

Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering 

The MS in the Biomedical Engineering program stresses the application of the principles and practices of engineering, science and mathematics in solving clinical problems in medicine and surgery.

PhD in Biomedical Engineering

The Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical Engineering offers advanced graduate education providing students with the skills necessary for careers in basic and applied research, as well as the intellectual foundation to provide leadership in academia and industry.  The PhD is jointly awarded by NJIT and Rutgers University.
