Why an M.Eng Biomedical Engineering at Rutgers?

BME is one of the fastest-growing fields in engineering, and our student-centric program prepares graduates for success by offering:

  • Broad training in quantitative BME with a focus on professional development
  • A faculty of leaders in molecular, cellular, and nanosystem bioengineering, biomaterials engineering, neurotechnology, and more
  • A curriculum built for passionate researchers in tissue engineering, biomaterials, drug delivery, and beyond
  • Ties to the world’s leading pharmaceutical, medical device, and biotechnology corporations
  • A growing alumni network

A Top M.Eng Biomedical Engineering Program

This is just a taste of what’s happening in the Rutgers BME department:

  • Professor Martin Yarmush’s recently-awarded patent describes a system comprising an extracorporeal bioreactor containing a population of undifferentiated multipotent stromal cells (MSCs) for treating liver failure
  • Professor William Craelius was awarded the 2013 QED Innovation Award for Dynawheel™, a digital health-enabled rehabilitations device he developed to help people recover from stroke and neuromuscular injuries
  • Professor Noshir Langrana and team have received a US patent on an “Agent delivery system capable of selectively releasing an agent”

The Curriculum

Explore six critical areas of BME: biomaterials and tissue engineering; biomechanics and rehabilitation engineering; computational bioengineering and biomedical imaging; molecular, cellular, and nanosystems bioengineering; neuroengineering; and physiological systems and bioinstrumentation. Plus, have the opportunity to work one-on-one with faculty for independent study.
