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.
Each university in the Unites States of America sets its own admission standards so there isn't the same criteria for all the students and the university can decide which applicants meet those standards. The fee for each application is between $35 to $100.
After the selections of the universities you want to attend, the best of all would be to contact each university for an application form and more admission information for the international students. Moreover, for a graduate or postgraduate program it's necessary to verify the admission requirements. Some programs require that you send your application directly to their department.
Admissions decisions are based on students's academic record and different test scores, such as TOEFL, the SAT or ACT (for undergraduate programs) and GRE or GMAT (for graduate programs). Admission decision is based on your academic results and motivation.
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.
