Catholic University offers graduate degrees at the masters and doctorate levels of biomedical engineering. The strength of biomedical engineering lies in the ability to strategically grasp knowledge from several areas of engineering and apply it to particular problems in medicine, biology and neuroscience. It has been historically shown that when engineering knowledge is applied appropriately to these fields tremendous advancements occur. A student in biomedical engineering does not focus on a particular area of engineering, but rather the fundamental engineering tools developed in all engineering areas.
Candidates in the masters and doctorate degree programs may choose to pursue a general program, which can emphasizes skills for basic or applied research in medicine, biology and neuroscience.
