Specialty Programs

The graduate programs within the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering offer two unique graduate specialty programs:

Biomedical Entrepreneurship (Biomedship) certificate program

The Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering has teamed with the Purdue University Krannert School of Management and the Indiana University School of Medicine to create Biomedship. This innovative graduate certificate program is designed to train graduate students to become the next generation of leaders in biomedical innovation, commercialization, and management. Students enrolled in any of the graduate programs offered by the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering may choose to enroll in the Biomedship program.

Regulatory Affairs for Medical Devices (certificate program pending)

Students enrolled in any of the graduate programs offered by the Weldon School of Biomedical Engineering can participate in this sequence of courses designed to educate participants on practical regulatory affairs at both the initial approval and later compliance stages. Students gain valuable in-depth knowledge of regulatory requirements as well as guided practice with effective regulatory document submissions. This advanced education in quality and regulatory compliance will prepare students for rapid integration into regulatory affairs teams in critical areas of the industry.

Interdisciplinary Training for Diabetes Research

This elite program, co-directed by Purdue and the Indiana University School of Medicine, provides interdisciplinary, integrated research training to develop predoctoral students into bioengineers capable of leading integrative and team-based approaches to solve issues relevant to the understanding, prevention, and treatment of diabetes and diabetic complications.
