It’s Right For YOU!

Lehigh’s Master of Science program in Bioengineering will provide you the skillsets to pursue promising careers in challenging industry sectors where you can make an impact! Students in the 30-credit degree program can focus their studies in one of three concentrations:

  1. Biomaterials, for students interested in biological and biomimetic materials, as well as their characteristics and applications in tissue engineering & regenerative medicine, nanomedicine and drug delivery;
  2. Bioengineering Product Development, for students interested in the design, development, regulation, and/or commercialization of medical products, including pharmaceuticals and medical devices; or
  3. Biocomputations and Biomedical Analytics, for students interested in the rapidly growing field of computational data sciences, as applied to biotechnology, biological systems, and biopharmaceutical development.

Alternately, students also may pursue a more generalized Master of Science in Bioengineering, with individualized curricular guidance. Based on your future career goals, interests, and time commitment, you can pursue a 12-month, coursework-only or research project option, or a longer research thesis-requiring degree.

Whatever your goals, we will help you build a personalized curriculum that is right for you!

Caroline Ferguson"Aspiring to be a physician I often get the question “Why are you earning a master’s degree?” The reason is due to the flexibility of the M.S. Bioengineering program. The faculty have worked with me on creating a clinically relevant curriculum within the field of bioengineering. The program has also provided me with the opportunity to conduct tissue engineering research in an academic lab. The ability of the program to cater to my own professional goals has provided me with the platform to grow as a student and professional."

-Peter Jensen, Bioengineering M.S. student
