The Georgia Tech Master of Biomedical Innovation and Development (MBID) offers current and aspiring biomedical technology professionals two outstanding career-building components in one tightly focused program:
- Collaborative academic instruction in biomedical technology from two top-ranked institutions in engineering and medicine; and
- Practical, hands-on clinical experience in Atlanta’s thriving biomedical industry.
Graduates of this intensive one-year professional master’s program will be exceptionally well prepared to pursue and advance their careers in the dynamic field of biomedical engineering devices and technology. Upon successful completion of this program, graduates will receive a “Master of Biomedical Innovation and Development” (MBID) degree from The Georgia Institute of Technology.
The new Georgia Tech MBID specifically addresses a gap in current professional biomedical education: the crucial “bench-to-bedside” progression that transforms biomedical research into practical, usable techniques and products for improving patient care. In this unique program, Georgia Tech MBID graduate students will study with experts in clinical practice, engineering design and development, best-practices manufacturing, financial planning, and commercialization, as well as guest lecturers from the diverse healthcare industry.
The MBID master’s program is a full-time, one-year residential program that is completed in three sequential semesters over 12 months. Candidates enroll in the fall semester and take four courses (fall & spring semester) and three courses (summer semester). At this time there are no evening or distance-learning options for the MBID program. Students must be enrolled full-time in the MBID program to register for MBID courses.
The Office of the Bursar assesses tuition and fees for all programs at Georgia Tech with details listed online at bursar.gatech.edu. Exact costs for the MBID program will be posted closer to the Fall term. Until then, prospective students can refer to the amount posted for the Master in Business Administration as the costs are expected to be similar.
