Dear Mason Bioengineering Students,


The Bioengineering Department is excited to offer a new Quality Science Education (QSE) curriculum for our students starting this June! The QSE program prepares students for careers in the life science industries – particularly in the pharmaceutical, medical device and biomedical science sectors. Courses will be available to take online through our new partner, Pathway for Patient Health. 


The online program offers 3 courses :

1) Global Regulatory and Legal Requirements of Quality focused on “why” global regulations were adopted, and the evolution of the quality systems grounded in science.

2) Product Development, Specifications, Process and Validation, to include criticality of inputs, risk controls and assessment, specifications, testing, clinical trials, transfer, scalability, yield and validation.

3) Risk and Failure Analysis, Investigation Processes and writing scientifically justified conclusions linked to laboratory experiments.


Highlights of the program include the following:
