Biomedical engineering is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to advance healthcare practices, including medical diagnosis, treatment, and monitoring. This highly multidisciplinary field cuts across traditional disciplinary boundaries of engineering, biology, and medicine, and emphasizes the importance of translational engineering research that makes findings from basic science useful for practical applications that improve human health.

The BME Department at Michigan State University (MSU) offers PhD and Master's graduate programs.  A wide range of course offerings and research activities allows an individual program to be designed to fit the background, capabilities, and goals of the student. See the Department of Biomedical Engineering's Graduate Academic Program section to learn more about our graduate program and degree requirements. For application requirements, please see the How to Apply section. The College of Engineering also provides additional resources for prospective graduate students.
