MSc Biomedical Engineering – Accelerated Master’s Program

Biomedical Engineering – Accelerated Master’s Program degree offered by the University of Arizona is for exceptional students enrolled at the University of Arizona for both their bachelor’s and master’s degrees. Students obtain a B.S. in Biomedical Engineering and a M.S. in Biomedical Engineering.

Quick Facts

Full-time Duration: 1 year
Starting in: August
Tuition Fee: $10,063 per semester
Location: Tucson, United States

Most importantly, the Biomedical Engineering – Accelerated Master’s Program degree offered by the University of Arizona is not designed to accelerate progress towards a Ph.D. degree in biomedical engineering. The intent of the AMP is to provide students with a terminal M.S. degree that they can then use to accelerate their careers in industry or medical research institutions.

The AMP program is not a stepping-stone for obtaining a B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. degree within 7 years, which is an unlikely scenario within our program. Students who are interested in a Ph.D. degree should consider the Ph.D. program rather than the AMP, as only the units taken after Bachelor’s degree is awarded can be used toward Ph.D total unit requirement.

Qualified students apply to the program nominally in the second semester of their junior year (i.e. with two full semesters remaining in their undergraduate program).

Gain the Skills to Improve Health Care

BME’s educational programs not only deliver a solid theoretical foundation in science and engineering, but also students gain the applied hands-on skills to design and build biomedical devices, instruments and systems.

Acquire the knowledge to contribute to improving health care. Learn how to create better and more cost-effective technologies for prevention, detection and treatment of health-related issues.

“Choosing the Master’s program for Physiological Sciences at the University of Arizona was one of the best decisions I could have made in my education. Our department is warm and collaborative, offering an array of research topics and techniques underneath a vast and integrative umbrella of physiology. Beyond my research experience, I was presented with teaching opportunities, which I feel honed my skill of scientific communication. Having the dynamic research/teaching/class schedule not only kept me active but helped me reinforce material in multiple contexts. Overall, this program was exactly what I wanted in my segway into the medical sciences… and with my teaching assistantship paying for my tuition, how could I say no?”​
