Master of Engineering in the Field of Regulatory Biomedical Engineering
The master of engineering in the field of regulatory biomedical engineering (rBME) is an interdisciplinary program offered through the Department of Biomedical Engineering in partnership with the School of Medicine and Health Sciences. The program is designed to train engineers in the specific set of skills of regulatory science, biomedical innovation, and entrepreneurship. Students with training in engineering or physics, and/or relevant experience in government and industry, learn the fundamentals of biomedical engineering, global regulatory affairs, regulatory strategy in the development of devices and diagnostics, regulatory compliance, engineering patent law, medical measurements, and instrument design. In addition to course work, students gain experience in SBIR/STTR grant applications and/or FDA Premarket Notification (510(k)) submissions for medical devices.
Specific admission requirements are shown on the Graduate Program Finder.
