Master’s degree in bioengineering

Earn Your Master’s Degree in Bioengineering at Johns Hopkins University

A master’s degree in bioengineering can prepare you for a variety of career paths. Graduates of Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) master’s program have found rewarding opportunities in medical device design, clinical research, technological manufacturing, consulting and other fields. Equipped with a comprehensive education, hands-on opportunities and real-world experience, you’ll graduate with all the tools you need for professional success.

The CBID graduate program is one of the most robust and dynamic master’s degree tracks in the nation. It combines:

  • A clinical immersion experience – The first weeks of the program are spent in rotations at Johns Hopkins Hospital. Students converse with clinicians and medical technologists across a variety of departments, including general surgery, orthopedic surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, emergency medicine and interventional radiology.
  • A global health trip – Upon completion of clinical rotations, students travel to a resource-constrained nation, such as Kenya, Indonesia or Nepal. During this portion of the program, they are able to discover the most pressing challenges faced by both patients and providers, taking into account limitations such as power outages and resource availability.
  • A lab-based design and development project – Working together in teams, students create a real solution for one of the challenges they previously identified. During this time, they have access to the full resources of the state-of-the-art CBID design lab. Final projects are presented at Design Day, a healthcare innovation showcase that is open to faculty, sponsors, clinicians, peers and the public.
  • A condensed biomedical engineering curriculum – While hands-on experiences make up the bulk of the CBID program, students also participate in a select range of classes that focus on the business of biomedicine. These courses are led by Johns Hopkins University’s esteemed engineering faculty.

Designed to be fast-paced and challenging, the CBID program enables students to earn their master’s degree in bioengineering in just one year. To apply for the program, please submit your online application by December 31.
