The master of science degree in Bioengineering combines engineering concepts with biology, medicine, health and computer sciences to teach students how to develop new medical devices, treatments and materials. Our curriculum offers two concentrations:
Biomedical engineers design artificial limbs, joints, tissues and organs as well as build diagnostic equipment, monitoring devices and drug delivery systems.
Cell/metabolic engineers create organisms, which produce useful biochemicals for therapeutic applications, or perform unique functions, such as detecting or detoxifying biohazardous chemicals.
Hybrid format, blending online, distance and face-to-face learning
Hands-on learning in laboratories or using simulation and computation equipment
Wilkes University engineers benefit from hands-on experiences unparalleled at other institutions in the region. Lab and classroom instruction includes training in cell and molecular techniques, bioinformatics, 3-D imaging and design software and instrumentation and/ other simulation technologies.
