Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering


Program Overview

The Department offers a Master of Science degree in biomedical engineering. This program is designed to prepare students to apply engineering principles to problems in medicine and biology, to understand and model multiple attributes of living systems, and to synthesize biomedical systems and devices. Students choose from among two areas of focus: medical imaging and medical instrumentation. The program is offered at the main campus in Foggy Bottom, and it takes full advantage of the close proximity (one city block) between the School of Engineering and Applied Science and the GW Medical School and GW Hospital.
