This program is designed to prepare the student upon graduation to pursue advanced education in a professional school (for medicine or dentistry). Biomedical engineering students combine a study of fundamental physiological and biological fundamental processes with a study of engineering methods. Within the biomedical engineering program, there are a number of focus areas, which lead to specific program tracks for undergraduate study. The bioinstrumentation track utilizes electrical engineering methods extensively. The biomechanics track brings mechanics and mechanical engineering methods into play. The biomaterials and tissue engineering track employs tools from chemical engineering and materials science.

The MS BIS is a Science, Technology, Engineering, Math degree that provides a broad technical and managerial understanding of information systems, including database, systems design and IS strategy. The broad range of specializations from data management, to security, to web systems make the MS BIS an extremely flexible degree. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics points to very strong need for managers with technical skills well into the next decade.

NJIT s Department of Biological Sciences is federated with Rutgers University-Newark, an affiliation that offers comprehensive opportunities for study and research, with diplomas issued jointly by NJIT and Rutgers. Students thus benefit from the best of both universities. NJIT emphasizes the quantitative and technical aspects of biology, while the focus at Rutgers is on the cellular and molecular aspects of biology, as well as ecology and evolution. Ample opportunities to participate in research at the undergraduate and graduate levels include neural-network function, neuro-immunology, waves and diffusion of ions in the brain, respiratory physiology, population dynamics, and global climate and ecosystem change.
