M.S. Program

The Master of Science degree provides students with a combination of experiences in basic research, design, development and practical applications.

The program requires successful completion of 26 credit hours, plus a thesis. As a non-thesis option requiring 31 credit hours, we offer enhanced clinical-immersive experiential learning to students with a BS degree in engineering, science, and math, to prepare them to enter the healthcare professions with unique, competitive advantages.
