Biomechanics Engineering Plan of Study
The Biomedical Engineering Department offers a 30 credit Master of Engineering degree with a concentration in Biomechanics Engineering. Upon completion of the Biomechanics Engineering track, students will be able to lead in the design, development and manufacturing of biomedical technology, devices, and systems. The Biomechanics track is well suited to those with an undergraduate degree in either Biomedical Engineering or Mechanical Engineering.
Curriculum & Program Outline
All students apply and are admitted to the UConn Graduate School. Students are expected to complete a 30 credit (10 courses) Master of Engineering program. The program takes approximately 3 years to complete. These courses provide students with the necessary depth of study (beyond the undergraduate level) for a thorough understanding of modern engineering techniques and technologies.
All courses are offered via online delivery.
