The Master of Science Biomedical Engineering programme at Nanyang Technological University aims to provide biomedical engineering related undergraduates with advanced training to get ready for PhD research or to join industry as potential leaders and to provide non-bioengineering graduate students with conversion/training courses to get into bioengineering related research.


Both full-time and part-time Biomedical Engineering programmes at Nanyang Technological University  are offered (unless stated). Part-time candidates are expected to obtain permission from their employer before admission to the programme. All classes are conducted in the evenings, while examinations are conducted during office hours.

Our accredited​ Chemical Engineering (CBE) and Bioengineering (BIE) programs offers you a world class curriculum that is innovative and integrated, so that students can experience a holistic educational experience and able to thrive in the following ways:

  • we offer a well-rounded chemical engineering or bioengineering training with exposure to a dynamic curriculum and industrial attachment, to give you the competitive edge to be a leaders in the future to solve real-world, multi-disciplinary issues;
  • we empower you to succeed in today's modern chemical engineering or bioengineering industries with unique opportunities that will provide you with the entrepreneurship skills in the interface between engineering and the business world to make commercial decisions that will fast track your career;
  • we nurture your creativity in a stimulating and research focussed environment with the use of our specialised engineering design studio so that you can realise your potential to be an independent and innovative designer.
