Online Biomedical Engineering Doctoral Program

Blue Marble University

Doctor of Science (D.Sc.) in Biomedical Engineering

3 Year Curriculum You Can Complete Entirely Online
Revised and Updated for May 2023

Pre-requisite: A minimum of a Bachelor Degree (or equivalent in education and training) with demonstrated competency in science, engineering, computer science, and math.

This is a broad and exciting field which combines applied engineering with current rapid advances in Biology and Medicine. The major goal of this interdisciplinary field is to use design and problem solving engineering skills to improve health care. Examples of biomedical applications include the development of biocompatible prostheses, medical devices, imaging equipment, and regenerative tissue growth.

We believe that the most important medical observation of our time is that repair stem cells taken from a patient’s blood can heal damaged tissue and can repair bodily functions. Stem cell science has opened a whole new and exciting area for biomedical engineers. New designs of equipment and processes are needed in the areas of batch preparation of stem cells, labeling and sorting of cells, cell preservation techniques, clinical diagnostic imaging devices to find such cells, scaffolding and other techniques for tissue creation, nanotechnology, as well as cellular delivery devices.

Fermentation Biotechnology: An exploding field where biotech engineers are said to be able to create any chemical using advances in this field.

Yet, even though tissue engineering and fermentation biotechnology remain our focus, our program is rock solid in  all the other hot new fields of nanotechnology, imaging systems, fiber optics and bio-sensors, biophotonic instrumentation, bioinformatics, robotics, medical devices and implants.

It is intended that a graduate of our program will be equally at home in an academic or industrial/pharmaceutical research lab, teaching setting, medical device manufacturer, medical imaging developer, clinical stem cell treatment clinic, clinical engineering environment, or in hospital administration.

We have an exciting program, and it is not as difficult as you think!! Dissertation topics are always open to the student to select what he/she would like to research (with faculty guidance and approval). We are currently encouraging dissertations that relate to the batch processing of human stem cells, growth media, and nanotechnology for labeling and sorting of cells, but this topic in biomedical processes is not a requirement.

We operate on a trimester schedule, which means that our academic year is divided into 3 segments of 4 months each. In each 4 month period, students take three courses. For some terms, or as determined by the University, students may be assigned courses in sequence, lasting about 1 month each. In that event, for any approximate one month period, a student will be studying one course.

The program comprises 72 trimester credits, and consequently is equivalent to the minimum 60 semester credits for a USA regionally accredited college or university. Upon completion, and for a nominal fee, graduates typically will be able to obtain a Certificate of Equivalency from a foreign education credentials evaluation service  for employment purposes in the USA.

Also available is our 5 year BS/DSc Curriculum for High School Graduates): This program features 2 years of preparation courses in basic sciences leading into our regular 3 year doctoral program. Graduates receive combined Bachelor Degree and Doctoral Degree.
