Admission to the BTDM (Biomedical Technology Development and Management) program is currently closed.

The Master of Science in Biomedical Technology Development and Management prepares students to meet the challenges of current and future directions in medical product discovery and development and the emerging needs of industry and government. The degree program provides a balance of scientific and management courses that prepare students to critically evaluate biomedical technologies, advance their own careers, and create new startup ventures. Classes are taught primarily in the evenings and on weekends to meet the needs of working professionals.  Online and hybrid classes are also part of the program.

The technical curriculum covers topics such as immunology, pharmacology, bioinformatics, neuroscience, biomaterials, molecular biotechnology, and medical imaging. Topics in the management curriculum include commercialization, intellectual property, ethics, project management, regulatory agencies, clinical trials, technology licensing, and finance. Students in their second year are encouraged to take on an independent project focused on either scientific research or business development.
