Graduate program


Master's degrees in Bioengineering

The Department of Bioengineering offers/administers three types of master's degrees.

  • Master of Science - Thesis Option
  • Master of Science - Non-thesis Option
  • Master of Engineering with a focus in Biological Engineering

Consult the Bioengineering Graduate Student Handbook (PDF) for full details, including how to apply to the program, how to select a thesis committee and how to develop a plan of study.

Current senior undergraduates at MU are encouraged to take the advantage of the Dual Enrollment program which allows "qualified undergraduate students to enroll in up to 12 hours of graduate credit during the last 30 hours of their undergraduate program". These qualified graduate credit hours can be counted toward the requirements for a master's degree in bioengineering.

Doctoral degree in Bioengineering

Consult the Bioengineering Graduate Student Handbook (PDF) for full details, including academic requirements, selection of a doctoral program committee and development of the plan of study.
