New Master of Applied Bioengineering program

The Master of Applied Bioengineering (MAB) integrates engineering design and entrepreneurship education to address unresolved clinical issues. MAB students will begin their 12-month program with a clinical preceptorship, during which they learn to identify unmet needs. The students will  gain the skills to design marketable solutions in the year-long biodesign series, and the program culminates in a summer.

This year we have a rolling application cycle beginning December 2015 for Autumn 2016 (late August) Admission. The Priority Application Deadline for domestic and international applicants is January 31, 2016. The Final Application Deadline is March 15, 2016. The MAB application materials can be found here.

Competitive candidates will have a B.S. or higher in an engineering, biological, physical or applied scientific discipline, strong academic performance, and academic background aligned with one of our technical concentration areas: Medical Imaging, Molecular Bioengineering and Biomaterials. We also expect students to have some experience in research or design, be self-motivated, and have evidence of good teamwork and communication skills. Qualified domestic and international students are encouraged to apply by the Priority Application Deadline.

More information about the program can be found online here. Please share these materials with Electrical Engineering students who you think would benefit from this Master of Applied Bioengineering program. Any questions can be directed to me, the MAB Academic Counselor at
