The Master of Science in Engineering Physics - Biomedical Engineering is designed so that its graduates can enter industry and government sectors as practicing engineers or pursue research and teaching careers with government and/or academic institutions. The major also provides advanced study in biomedical engineering, with an emphasis in biomedical instrumentation, biomechanics and medical imaging, for students who intend to pursue a doctoral degree in biomedical engineering or related fields.

Courses You'll Take

The biomedical engineering graduate program provides an excellent opportunity for individuals trained in technical disciplines, such as engineering and physics, to further their education. The curriculum consists of a basic core of physics courses and additional courses that support each student's goals. The program is very flexible and meets a variety of needs consistent with the resources of the School of Engineering and the University of Central Oklahoma.
