One Year Master’s Programs at Johns Hopkins University

Fast-paced and competitive, the one year master’s programs offered at Johns Hopkins University’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID) are among the best in the country. Graduates earn a Master’s of Science in Bioengineering, but gain more than a world-class education – they also receive hands-on experience that they can apply directly to their careers.

The CBID master’s degree program condenses several years’ worth of learning opportunities into a fast-paced 11-month schedule. From their very first day on campus, students collaborate with the renowned clinicians at Johns Hopkins Hospital, as well as the nationally ranked bioengineering faculty at Johns Hopkins University. Students are also encouraged to seek insight from the CBID’s corporate partners, representing leading corporations such as Medtronic, Boston Scientific and Clinvue.

Throughout the duration of the program, students complete:

  • Various clinical rotations at Johns Hopkins Hospital, shadowing physicians across departments such as obstetrics, interventional radiology and surgery
  • A global health trip, observing the distinct social and economic challenges faced by patients and physicians in resource-constrained developing nations
  • A hands-on design and development project, with the end goal of producing a working solution for one of the previously identified clinical challenges
  • Select classroom-based studies pertaining to the business of medical device development

This one year master’s degree program enables students to develop key leadership and management skills, as well as a heightened sense of entrepreneurship. It is one of only a select handful of programs to give students real-world experience with needs assessment, prototyping, licensing and commercialization, and other key steps in the device development process. From graduation onward, CBID alumni are well positioned to build dynamic and rewarding careers in the fast-paced bioengineering industry.
