Applied Biomedical Engineering Program Overview

In the Johns Hopkins Engineering Applied Biomedical Engineering online, part-time master’s program, you will study with acclaimed experts in biomedical research and medical care who are spearheading the latest techniques in practice and research. From using physiological knowledge and mathematical methods to design lab experiments and equipment to developing biological system modeling and computer simulation, you will take a deeper dive into the science and engineering that impacts the health of humanity.

You will also work alongside our colleagues who are scientists, physicians, and engineers at the world-renowned Johns Hopkins Hospital during a unique hybrid two-weekend residency course in Baltimore. Dynamic and life-saving solutions evolve from these biomedical engineering course projects, including a student who redesigned the Ebola protective suit by integrating a cooling system. In this hands-on, immersive lab experience, you will also design and build your own EKG monitor.

Take your biomedical engineering career to the next level with this unique interdisciplinary online, part-time master’s program that will allow you to:

  • Gain high demand skills to advance in the biomedical industry
  • Apply engineering principles to solve physiological and medical challenges
  • Design laboratory experiments and equipment
  • Engineer innovative solutions to unmet clinical needs
  • Translate cutting edge biomedical research into technologies of the future
  • Learn on your terms and enjoy a flexible course schedule in a format that works best for you
