Johns Hopkins University offers one year MS programs with a focus on immersive medical device design, allowing students to earn a master’s degree while gaining hands-on experience with prototyping and product development. At our Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design (CBID), students complete clinical rotations, global health trips, coursework, and real-world design projects that prepare them for careers in the medical device industry.
The CBID master’s degree program takes students through the entire device design cycle, from observation and analysis to development and commercialization. Throughout this experience, students collaborate with top industry experts, including:
The CBID medical device master’s program familiarizes students with pre- and post-market requirements, as well as device classifications, import and export regulations, and public health guidelines. While the traditional coursework component for this program is minimal, students learn how to efficiently research intellectual property, write business plans, present their ideas to outside advisors, and complete other core steps in the device development process. Students also develop their leadership, communications, and marketing skills throughout the duration of the CBID program.
The CBID’s one year MS programs begin in the summer and run continuously through the fall and spring semesters, culminating in a medical device design capstone project. Master’s degree-seeking students can submit their CBID applications online through January 5.
