The mission of the Johns Hopkins Department of Biomedical Engineering is to improve human health through excellence in research and education at the interface of engineering, biology and medicine.
The masters degree program prepares students to pursue careers in research and development, or as a step toward Ph.D. or M.D. / Ph.D. education.
Students are provided theoretical instruction in the traditional engineering disciplines, given exposure to specialized biomedical engineering topics and participate in supervised research projects.
The departments' Biomedical Design Studio provides a premiere work space and resources for students to brainstorm, design, and develop prototypes for solutions to real-world clinical and global health challenges.
All students have the potential to receive full tuition support by obtaining a position in a research laboratory. Research is vital to your learning experience and all students are strongly urged to obtain a research laboratory prior to enrollment in the fall. We will make every effort to assist students in finding thesis research laboratories that can provide tuition support each semester. However, students are expected to take the initiative in finding the funded projects. International students are invited to contact faculty as soon as possible to try to secure funding. For further information on the cost of living at Johns Hopkins, please consult the current estimates of tuition and other expenses.
