1 Year Master’s Degree Programs

Johns Hopkins University Among Esteemed Providers of 1 Year Master’s Degree Programs

Students who are considering 1 year master’s degree programs can apply to Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Biomedical Engineering Innovation and Design. While most other graduate degree programs focus on research and academics, the CBID program takes a more condensed, hands-on approach. Students complete clinical rotations at Johns Hopkins Hospital, followed by a month-long global health trip abroad. These opportunities are designed to immerse students in the world of clinical healthcare, enabling them to observe the most pressing challenges affecting physicians and patients alike.

From there, CBID students are assigned into teams and challenged to create a solution for one of the challenges that they observed. Past projects have included:

  • Orthopedic surgery tools
  • Allergy testing software
  • Wearable heart rate monitors for brachycardia
  • Smartphone-based neonatal monitoring apps
  • Reusable biopsy devices
  • Carbon dioxide-powered cryoablation tools
  • Telemedicine screening systems
  • Automated tourniquets

Throughout the process, students are encouraged to consult with the CBID’s industry partners, gaining real-world insight from investors, patent lawyers, manufacturers and other experts. Students also have access to the CBID’s state-of-the-art biomedical design studio, where they are able to collaborate, design, build, test, evaluate and refine their prototypes. At the end of the year-long program, students present their projects at Design Day – the program’s innovation showcase.

The fast-paced CBID program is ideal for students who are looking for a challenging and fully immersive experience. Graduates receive an MSE degree with the prestige of the Johns Hopkins University name, as well as a unique perspective that will remain with them for the rest of their lives.
