Graduate Studies

MSE Degree Program

The David E. Swirnow Master of Science in Bioengineering Innovation and Design is a rigorous real-world medical innovation and biodesign program, aimed at training the next generation of global medical innovators.  From Asia to Africa to the United States, CBID engineers are on the front lines, creating technologies that make patients’ lives better.

Real problems call for real solutions.  Check out some of the global health and medtech projects completed by previous CBID students below.

From the first day on campus, students interact with Johns Hopkins Hospital clinicians — some of the best in the world — then travel to meet in person those who will most benefit from their work. Upon return students dive into cross-disciplinary course work, taking their ideas from napkin to prototype in a state-of-the-art design studio carefully created for collaboration and efficiency. The support of top clinicians, investors, the FDA, reimbursement experts, country ministers, and others necessary for success is readily available. As a result of this unique access, many students graduate from CBID with patents for their projects.
