Advanced, independent research with the guidance of an advisor is the foundation of WPI’s MS in Biomedical Engineering program. Students work in state-of-the-art facilities and develop close mentoring relationships with involved faculty who are passionate about research and exploration that will make a difference and provoke change.
You’ll be involved in applying concepts that might lead to the next big breakthrough of a device or a product that could be used worldwide and help people live longer, healthier, and more comfortable lives.
Graduate students work collaboratively on projects like these:
- Designing, fabricating, and testing electrospun biomaterials into tissue engineered blood vessels
- Creating a valve-scale 3-D in-vitro tissue model using heart valve cells
- Cell-derived tissue to make blood vessels
- A novel dynamic splint design for ankle sprains
