The Biomedical Engineering graduate program at Rutgers has launched a 100% online Masters of Engineering degree program that parallels the curriculum taken by traditional, "on-ground" MEng students. The faculty teaching these courses, with the help of experienced instructional designers from Pearson, are developing the content and will administer the courses to ensure that the same high quality training and education is delivered to our online students as our on-the-ground students, but with the added flexibility that accompanies online learning.
The MEng Degree in Biomedical Engineering is a coursework-based program designed for professionals who are interested in advancing their core training to a graduate level and applying that training to understand and develop cutting edge solutions to high impact problems in biology and medicine. As an integrative and interdisciplinary program, BME attracts students from a wide range of disciplines who are drawn to the field by the opportunity to learn how to operate at the interface of engineering, the mathematical and physical sciences, the life sciences, and medicine. The 33-credit curriculum includes core engineering classes, math, physiology, cell biology, BME electives, professional development courses, and independent study, where students work one-to-one with faculty on a semester-long project.
We are very excited about this new program and the opportunity to broaden the impact and accessibility of graduate training and education at Rutgers.
