student in the lab

Leveraging strong ties between the University of Vermont's College of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences and the Larner College of Medicine, the Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering (BME) was created to give students the opportunity to develop advanced skills so that they may apply engineering methods to address problems related to human health.

Students enrolled in the MS in BME program will have the opportunity to pursue a research-oriented, thesis-based, project-based, or coursework-based program. Students who want to participate in research may consider some of our interdisciplinary labs to pursue their research interests. In the M-Sense Lab, the team is focused on developing methods for characterizing human biomechanics and physiology that employ cutting-edge technologies such as wearable and mobile devices. The Musculoskeletal Imaging and Orthopaedic Biomechanics (MIOB) Laboratory works to improve human health and performance for those who suffer from musculoskeletal and orthopaedic conditions using both experimental and computational methods. EBRL, or the Engineered Biomaterials Research Laboratory, investigates natural materials and synthetic polymerization techniques to afford a platform of innovative and sustainable products for fields such as materials science, engineering and medicine. Program faculty also work in multi-departmental and multi-disciplinary lab centers, such as the Vermont Lung Center.
