Master of Science in the Field of Biomedical Engineering
The degree of master of science in the field of biomedical engineering degree program is designed to prepare students to apply engineering principles to problems in medicine and biology, to understand and model multiple attributes of living systems, and to synthesize biomedical systems and devices. Students choose between two areas of focus: medical imaging or medical instrumentation. Thesis and non-thesis options are available. The program is offered on GW's main campus in Foggy Bottom, where the School of Engineering and Applied Science, the School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and GW Hospital are separated by one city block.
