Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Surgery Announce New Master's Program
The Departments of Biomedical Engineering and Surgery are pleased to announce the commencement of a new, collaborative Masters program in Cardiovascular Device Design. This program intends to generate a new paradigm of device development in an era of increasing health care cost constraints and limited commercial resources. The graduates and associated intellectual property of this program will directly improve patient care through increased efficiency of clinician-engineer communications, more targeted and effective devices, and shifting device R&D to need-based development.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering will be accepting masters degree applications during the winter of 2011 for prospective students to begin the program July 1, 2012. All interested students must have or be completing a B.S. degree in Biomedical Engineering. More information is available at the program's website. The program is also interested in developing partnerships with device companies for collaborative work; please contact Dr. Ankur Chandra for more information.
