The Biomedical Engineering Department offers programs leading to
the Master of Science (M.S.) and
Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degrees, as
well as a certificate program for those
seeking professional development or as a gateway to the M.S.
The School of Engineering also offers a cross-departmental,
interdisciplinary bioengineering (M.S.) program that provides a
broad engineering and biotechnology curriculum, while offering a
focus on a specific engineering track that best fits students'
interests and career choices. This combination gives our
bioengineering graduates professional flexibility, a distinct
competitive advantage in the ever-changing field of bioengineering.
Also of interest for prospective students is the Joint-Ph.D. in
Materials Science and Engineering.
Entrance requirements for the graduate program:
Applicants to the graduate program are expected to have a degree at
the level of Bachelor or Master in engineering or
basic/applied/health sciences. Requirements include a basic
knowledge of biology, math through ordinary differential equations,
and some basic engineering courses (for example, fluid mechanics,
properties of materials, thermodynamics, circuit theory). Students
who do not meet all requirements may be admitted into the program
pending the successful completion of courses aimed at the
fulfillment of the requirements. Tufts will offer the opportunity
for students accepted into the graduate program to attend courses
specifically designed to provide appropriate background in areas
such as biology, mathematics, circuit theory, chemical engineering,
Student Progress Forms and Handbook:
Current students should fill out the applicable form by beginning of
each semester and return it to the main Biomedical Engineering
