Combining technical skills with business leadership
|Prepare for leadership careers in the biotech industry with our 10-month Berkeley Master of Engineering in Bioengineering. Learn practical problem solving and core management concepts as well as honing your technical skills with our integrated engineering and business curriculum. You’ll tackle actual industry challenges through case studies and your capstone project.|
Application deadline: January 6, 2023, at 8:59 pm, PST
Choose from 7 cutting-edge technical concentrations:
Introduces you to major problems addressed by bioengineers today, along with the modern methods used to solve them. Exposes you to bioengineering research through hands-on projects in faculty labs and to entrepreneurship practices through classes and research.
Biomedical Engineering Design
Exposes you to unmet clinical need areas directly from subject matter experts. Help you analyze and correlate engineering principles to existing medical, pharmaceutical products. Prepares you for engineering careers in industries with the full spectrum knowledge of technology-to-product pathway, including applied technical skills and commercialization steps.
Prepare for a range of career options within industries developing and/or applying multi-modal imaging modalities. Course work emphasizes fundamental mathematics and physics alongside engineering principles for design innovation. Career options range from application of pre-clinical imaging in pharmaceutical testing, to engineering of novel imaging devices and modalities, to clinical research and application of emerging methodologies.
Biomaterials & Biomedical Devices
Prepares you for careers in industries that apply fundamental biomaterials science and device design to markets for clinical product manufacturing, medical implants, pharmaceuticals, diagnostics, wearable technology, and other related fields.
Teaches you how living systems sense, process, and respond to mechanical forces. Prepares you for a wide variety of career paths, including biomaterials, stem cell engineering, and medical devices such as orthopedic implants and cardiovascular grafts.
Bioinformatics & Computational Biology
Prepares you for a career managing and analyzing genomic and molecular data, applying techniques like statistical modeling, machine learning, databases, scripting, and bioinformatics tool development/deployment in fields such as precision molecular medicine, genetic engineering, and biotechnology.
Prepares you to design and build novel biological functions and systems by applying engineering design principles and computational tools to biology to produce materials more cheaply and sustainably, and to design and construct better-performing genetic systems quickly, reliably, and safely.
Students may choose a concentration or select their own courses with approval.
