The Master of Engineering (M.Eng.) in Bioengineering degree program is also offered through an online venue, with the three transcriptable concentrations to choose from:  bioinstrumentation, computational genomics and general bioengineering.  The flexibility of an online is an excellent option for students who are looking to pursue a graduate degree while still working. 

The M.Eng. in Bioengineering degree awarded online is the exact same degree award to students who complete the on-campus program.  Through the online program, students will augment the depth of their technical background, while also developing fundamental skills in business, preparing students to take on first level supervisory roles in the healthcare industry.

The online degree can be completed in as little as 5 semesters, depending on how many classes are taken per semester, but students have up to five years to complete it.  All online students receive access to recorded lectures and follow the class syllabus, including assignments, exams and projects.  The instructors will be available for virtual office hours and to answer questions.
