Georgia Institute of Technology's Biomedical Engineering master's degree allows students to pursue advanced studies in biomedical engineering in the following areas: biomedical imaging and instrumentation, biomaterials and regenerative technologies, cellular engineering and mechanics, biomedical informatics and systems modeling, neuroengineering, and biomedical robotics.


Key facts

Georgia Institute of Technology's Biomedical Engineering master's degree program requires 30 credit hours beyond the bachelor's degree. Both thesis and non-thesis options are available. Courses are offered all three terms; however, full-time students planning to complete the MS degree in 12 months should start their programs in the fall semester.

Students completing both a bachelor’s and master’s in biomedical engineering at Georgia Tech may use up to six credit hours of graduate-level coursework in the major discipline for both degrees. To qualify for this option, students must complete the undergraduate degree with a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher and complete the master’s degree within a two-year period from the award date of the bachelor’s degree.
