Graduate Neuroengineeringand Health Technologies

The University of Utah’s graduate track in neuroengineering is a varied research program that covers key areas such as implanted electrode design, neuromodulation, neuroregeneration, neural signal analysis, neuroprostheses, and neurorehabilitation. The field of neuroengineering has expanded tremendously in the last few decades, and now also includes diverse topics such as deep brain stimulation, visual and motor neuroprostheses, bioelectric treatments for pain, artificial memory, bioinspired artificial intelligence, noninvasive neuroimaging and neuromodulation, neural-tissue regeneration, and neuroethics. Neurotechnology is now rapidly entering the commercial market with novel medical applications offering treatments for a variety of neurological impairments and direct-to-consumer products in the areas of augmented and virtual reality offering enhanced human-computer interactions.

Suggested Courses and Program of Study

The following are suggestions of Programs of Study for a full-time Electrical Engineering graduate student pursuing an MS degree with an emphasis in neuroengineering or other health technologies. It is not required that students follow thesecourse schedule, but they can used as a guide for planning out their graduate studies.

These Programs of Study meets the requirements for the Coursework option and can easily be modified to meet the Project option. Students who wish to complete the Thesis option will need to take 10+ credit hours of ECE 6970 Thesis Research are recommended to meet with the Graduate Student Coordinator to create their academic plan.

As long as the MS degree requirements are met, any 5000-level or above ECE or allied (Math, Physics, CS, or other Engineering) courses may be substituted.
