Master’s Program Offerings

There are three master’s degrees available at U-M BME: Master of Science Degree (MS), Master of Science in Engineering Degree (MSE), and Master of Engineering Degree (MEng). The MEng is also known as the Advanced Medical Product Engineering & Development (AMPED) Program.

Under the guidance of BME faculty advisors, students plan a course of study in one of five concentrations for the MS and MSE degree options:

  • Bioelectrics and Neural Engineering
  • Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine
  • Biomedical Imaging and Ultrasonics
  • Biotechnology and Systems Biology
  • Biomechanics and Biotransport

Graduate Design Program

The Dept. of Biomedical Engineering has added a new professional Master’s program (MEng) in Advanced Medical Product Engineering & Development (AMPED). This program is designed for students who are pursuing careers in the medical technology industries. The AMPED program replaces the Medical Product Development concentration in the BME graduate program.

Student Forms

All undergraduate and graduate student forms are now available on the BME INTRANET in the Student Resources > Forms section. You will need to log in using your M+Google (Level 1) account. If you are unable to access these files, please contact for assistance.
