The degree of Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (MSc in BMED) is awarded for successfully completing the requirements of a program of study which includes taught courses as well as a thesis. The thesis is an independent investigation of specialized areas within the general field of Biomedical Engineering. The MSc in BMED gives candidates the opportunity to deepen their knowledge in the broad fields of BME (Biomedical Engineering) and contributes to the process of discovery and knowledge creation through the conduct of original research. Candidates for this degree are taught and supervised by experienced faculty and are expected to demonstrate initiative in their approach and innovation in their work. In addition to successfully completing the taught course component of the program, candidates prepare and present a thesis on their chosen area. Research may be undertaken in several topics corresponding to the areas of focus identified by the University.


Career Opportunities

Graduates from the Master’s Degree in Biomedical Engineering (MSc in BMED) of Khalifa University, will be equipped with solid engineering principles, in conjunction with know-hows in the frontiers of medical and biological sciences. As students, during their MSc in BMED studies were given opportunities to perform research in one of the core BME disciplines including Computational Bioengineering; Biomechanics; Regenerative Medicine; RNA Post-Transcriptional Modifications (Epitranscriptome), Molecular Medicine; Biomaterials; Biosignal Processing; Bioinformatics; Computational Neuroscience and Genomics. Hence, many career opportunities emerge. The latter include areas such as in telemedicine; sports medicine; bio-robotics; medical informatics; stem cell biology; system biology; artificial organ; drug delivery; and biosensors.

The new graduates will lead in the design and development of advanced equipment, electronic devices, biomolecular systems, as well as software used in healthcare and medical devices. They will be research engineers, AI in health experts, application specialists and biopharmaceutics scientists in several emerging sectors of biomedical, biotechnology and pharmaceutical industries, including medical instrumentations; clinical engineering; protein engineering; rehabilitation engineering; drug manufacturing and AI-based medical informatics.   Furthermore, graduates go through rigorous training and research experience to help them pursue their studies at PhD level.
