Master of Engineering: Medical Device Spec

This is an exciting time for Bioengineering as we push the utmost boundaries of science and knowledge. The Department of Bioengineering at the University of California, San Diego stands at the forefront of education and cutting-edge research that will impact humanity for years to come. By inspiring education and through dedicated mentorship, we train leaders in biomedical engineering who have experience in research as well as industrial and clinical applications. The integration of engineering principles with scientific discoveries and technology innovation will realize our ultimate goal to improve health and quality of life.

The purpose of the MDE specialization is to prepare design and project engineers for careers in the medical device industry. This program addresses both the technical and professional needs of creating new medical devices and is intended for students who are primarily interested in engineering design, development, manufacturing, and management within an industrial or professional setting. The M.Eng. MDE is considered a terminal, professional degree.
