Biomaterials Engineering Graduate Programs
Alfred University offers an M.S. degree in Biomaterials Engineering (BME) designed for students who wish to study materials for medical applications. Our BME graduates are well prepared to enter the rapidly growing “biotech” industries where knowledge of both materials and molecular cell biology is rare. They are also prepared to enter industries that develop and manufacture medical devices, such as cardiovascular stints and dental prosthetics. Applicants interested in pursuing a Ph.D. should consider applying to our Ph.D. program in Materials Science and Engineering.
The graduate BME program was created in 2000 as a joint effort between the Division of Biology and the School of Engineering with the financial assistance of the Whittaker Foundation grant.
