Seven College of Engineering departments, over 20 concentrations.
Strengthen your technical depth with coursework offered by each of the seven College of Engineering departments, chosen from over 20 fields in new and emerging technologies taught by world renown faculty. Apply your technical expertise to a real world issue through the Capstone project.
Concentrations by Department
The MEng degree places strong emphasis on both engineering and entrepreneurship in the broadest aspects of bioengineering, preparing students for executive level roles. Capstone projects within this concentration have the potential of leading to technological and commercial innovations, specifically in renown Berkeley Bioengineering fields such as micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS), systems and synthetic biology, and biomaterials.

The MEng program has provided me with analytical skills and techniques necessary to identify new/arising technological business opportunities as well as understand the effect of disruptive technologies. More importantly, I learned the best engineering solution may not be the most business savvy or politically favorable. An electronic product can have excellent performance, but if it does not address the need of the user, there is no value to it — no one will buy it. Also, I learned the adoption curve for a new product. All these insights, including many more not mentioned, has helped me become a more well rounded person, equipped to tackling the multi-faceted problems faced by R&D in large corporations.— Vincent Lee MEng ‘12 in Electrical Engineering & Computer Science Current Job: Oracle America Inc. / Hardware Engineer in Oracle Labs
