Program Description

The graduate-level (M.S. and Ph.D.) programs in Biomedical Engineering (BME) are offered jointly by NDSU’s College of Engineering, UND’s School of Medicine and Health Sciences, and UND’s College of Engineering and Mines.

The BME programs provide opportunities for technically qualified persons to attain specialized knowledge in an area of industry need, and to enhance career opportunities. The objective of the jointly-sponsored, interdisciplinary graduate programs is to:

  • Meet the needs of regional students interested in biomedical engineering.
  • Attract women and under-represented minorities into a developing field.
  • Educate and train students through courses and research focused on biomedical research and device development.
  • Advance the biomedical knowledge base through collaborative research directed by faculty from UND’s School of Medical and Health Sciences, College of Engineering and Mines, and NDSU’s College of Engineering and other qualified researchers from the two universities.
  • Through biomedical research and device development, develop intellectual property to generate company spin-offs, attract new companies, and subsequent economic development.
