Master of Engineering in Bioinstrumentation
Curriculum: Fall Semester
In the fall semester, students will take BIOE 571, which teaches the underlying engineering concepts behind excitation and sensing that are used throughout medical imaging modalities (such as ultrasound, MRI, CT, X-ray), microscopy, and biodetection. BIOE 573, taught by faculty in the College of Business at Illinois, introduces students to the key processes and methodologies used to create bioinstrumentation products, with topics that span development of product requirements, the FDA approval process, software/hardware validation, risk analysis, and project management.
- BIOE 570 - Seminar in Bioinstrumentation (1 hour)
- BIOE 571 - Biological Measurement I (4 hours)
- BIOE 573 - Managing Business Operations (4 hours)
- Electives (8 hours)
During the spring semester, students will take BIOE 572, an engineering course that builds on BIOE 571 by introducing advanced concepts and technologies in bioinstrumentation. In Spring, all students also will take BIOE 574, which covers further business-related topics such as intellectual property, the innovation process, systems engineering, and designing for requirements.
Students will work on their applied consulting project during the Spring semester. They will take what they have learned, and apply it to solving a real-world problem posed to them by one of the programís partner institutions. Projects will include elements of competitive analysis, product design, prototyping, and pilot testing.
- BIOE 570 - Seminar Series (1 hour)
- BIOE 572 - Biological Measurement II (4 hours)
- BIOE 574 - Bioinstrumentation Innovation (4 hours)
- BIOE 575 - Applied Consulting Project (6 hours)
