Graduate Programs

The Meinig School of Biomedical Engineering (BME) graduate field offers students a world-class education in a world-class research environment. We offer two graduate degrees: a master of engineering (M.Eng.) and a doctorate of philosophy (Ph.D.).

Our faculty routinely conduct interdisciplinary research with members of other departments. For our graduate students, this provides exposure to a broad spectrum of concepts and the experience of an unusually collaborative culture.

BME graduate students master a set of core concepts and principles critical to a fundamental understanding of biomedical engineering, but also have tremendous flexibility in designing a sequence of coursework and research. With guidance and approval, programs are tailored to meet particular needs and interests across six strategic research areas.

I chose Cornell not only for the phenomenal research opportunities, but I felt that the BME community here felt real and genuine. Cornell BME allows me to have flexibility in my coursework and gives me skills to guide my own path during my research career, and I value that tremendously.
