Biomedical Engineering Graduate Programs (M.S., Ph.D.)
From advances in chemotherapy to innovative prosthetics, medical technology continues to advance, giving patients new options for living healthier, longer lives. Thousands of technological breakthroughs are the result of biomedical engineers rising to meet the needs of medical professionals and the communities they serve. Students interested in this exciting career can find advanced knowledge and experience through one of Florida Tech's biomedical engineering graduate programs. Whether you want a career in medicine or in the rapidly growing biotechnology industry, an advanced degree from Florida Tech ensures academic choices, entrepreneurship options and practicing partnerships.
A Focus on Field Study
Providing new opportunities to blend science and engineering to solve complex medical challenges, Florida Tech's biomedical engineering graduate programs keep students on the leading edge of what is happening in the medical community. The university is located in a growing healthcare region that includes hospitals, health centers and institutes, providing opportunities for advanced laboratory research and mentorship with medical professionals.
Experienced Faculty Offering More Than Classroom Teaching
The biomedical engineering graduate programs at Florida Tech are comprised of professors who both teach and conduct research with students and other faculty (from the university and around the world). Joining these professors are medical doctors who guide students while completing research of their own. This mix of traditional academic faculty and industry professionals ensures that students receive the most up-to-date industry research and developments.
A wide variety of research facilities needed for the biomedical engineering graduate programs are available on campus at Florida Tech. This includes instrumentation, clinical research, bioactive materials, devices, photonics and lasers, microscopy and advanced imaging.

Graduate students seeking to advance their expertise in biomedical engineering can continue their studies and pursue a Ph.D. Instead of focusing on basic completion of a curriculum, the degree is awarded based on creative accomplishment and the ability to independently investigate problems faced by today's medical community.
Build Professional Relationships
Beyond the classroom, students participate in academic organizations like Tau Beta Pi (the engineering honor society), the Premed Club (campus chapter of the American Medical Student Association), athletics and over 100 other campus-wide student organizations.
Varied Career Opportunities
Graduates of the biomedical engineering graduate programs at Florida Tech find careers such as working alongside medical scientists and professionals, developing new technologies and products, conducting research for the National Institutes of Health or being on the cutting edge of non-invasive diagnostic tools.
