Meet the Program Director

Dominique M. Durand, Ph.D., Program Director Professor, Department of Biomedical Engineering Neural Engineering Center and Biomedical Engineering Department

Welcome to the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering online degree program. Started in 1968, the BME department at CWRU is one of the most established and most respected departments in the world. Our faculty are experts in neural engineering, imaging, prosthetics, biomaterials and tissue engineering. They work with clinicians to solve health problems related to many diseases such as cancer, epilepsy, paralysis, stroke, cardiac arrhythmias and infection. Although this program is online, you will learn the tools and engineering skills necessary to solve today’s biomedical problems.

Biomedical engineers are in demand in all sectors of the health industry, including in hospitals, regulatory bodies such as the FDA, biotech companies, national laboratories and universities.

Our online program is designed to provide students with depth and breadth in the field with core courses in the instrumentation and analysis fundamentals as well as physiology, and specialty courses in imaging, neural engineering and biomaterials. The degree will also provide significant depth in translational skills with courses in regulatory aspects of health technology, biodesign, engineering management and team projects.

The coursework has been designed especially for our online students using best practices for effective online pedagogy adapted for engineering material. In particular, we have focused on teaching presentation and problem-solving skills to engineers online using dedicated simulation software and team projects with on-campus students. The material taught in these classes is the same as that offered to our on-campus students and online students are paired with on-campus students for design projects and presentations.

We look forward to meeting you online and providing you with an important stepping stone for a career in biomedical engineering.
