Engineering students seeking a unique grad program can apply to Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID). Unlike other MSE degree programs, the CBID program takes a more hands-on approach. Students are immersed in the medical innovation design process for a fast-paced, year-long experience that culminates in an MSE degree.
Beginning in summer and running through the fall and winter semesters, the CBID master’s program has students observe clinicians at Johns Hopkins Hospital and an overseas health clinic, then apply their observations to team-based research projects. Working in the recently renovated CBID design lab, students create practical solutions for both local and global health needs, focusing not only on relevancy and clinical viability but also cost effectiveness and marketability.
At each step of the medical innovation cycle, our clinician advisory board provides insight into the clinical needs process, guiding students through each of the essential steps. Throughout the CBID engineering grad program, students move their projects from the lab to commercial development, taking into consideration:
To apply for the CBID engineering grad program, submit your application online by January 5. We welcome applications from all students with an interest in medical innovation, whether or not they have traditional engineering backgrounds.
