Graduate Degrees

Bioengineering (Master of Engineering) | General Bioengineering

Grainger College of Engineering

The online Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Bioengineering program combines the strengths of the Grainger College of Engineering and the Gies College of Business at the University of Illinois.  Graduates are equipped with hard-core technical skills and big-picture business perspective—trained to find creative solutions to complex, multi-level systems problems.

The M.Eng. in Bioengineering program can be specialized through two transcriptable concentrations: bioinstrumentation and general bioengineering.

General bioengineering:  This concentration is designed to bridge the skills gap between general bioengineering concepts and more business acumen through coursework and an applied consulting project. The in-depth technical training combined with the core business classes required will develop well-rounded professionals entering the healthcare industry.

Bioinstrumentation concentration:  This concentration focuses on medical imaging devices, trains engineers to be industry leaders by combining rigorous graduate-level engineering coursework with fundamental business training on issues that confront professionals who develop products for biomedical imaging, medical diagnostics, genomics, and tools used in life science research.

It is also available as an on-campus program.
