We offer a master degree in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Memphis. Biomedical Engineering is a broad field that focuses on improving health with the use of engineering principles. 


Our graduate Biomedical Engineering program at the University of Memphis is a collaboration with the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC). 

We offer three graduate degrees in BME: MS degree with project, MS degree with thesis, and PhD with doctoral dissertation. Students can choose to work in the areas of Biosensors, Biomechanics, Bioelectricity, and Biomaterials.

Key Features 

  • Biomedical Engineers work in industry, in hospitals, and in research labs of government, academic, and industrial institutions. They may also become part of the regulatory function in government.
  • Our program has a strong record of job placement after graduation. Approximately 54% of our students are now working in industry and 27% have continued on to with a graduate degree programs.

Programme Structure

  • Biomedical engineers use technology and biological sciences to solve health problems and advance healthcare. They do things like design joint replacement implants, develop life-saving tools, and discover new ways to deliver drugs to fight disease.
  • Start solving health problems in Herff's biomed lab. Grow your own cells on a template to see how you might heal different parts of the body. Right now, we're developing a device that guides the treatment of septic shock better than ever before. Sound unbelievable? It's not. Every day, Herff students bring new ideas to the table and push the field of biomedical research further.
