Overview

A Highly Ranked Engineering University

Milwaukee School of Engineering (MSOE) is a highly regarded regional university that offers programs in engineering, business, mathematics, and nursing. Both "The Princeton Review" and "U.S. News and World Report" rank MSOE among the best in the Midwest. "Forbes" places MSOE among the top 9% of universities in the nation for engineering programs.

Milwaukee School of Engineering also consistently ranks as a best value on the "U.S. News and World Report" survey of Midwestern universities without Ph.D. programs.

This highly-ranked university offers a Master of Science in Perfusion degree program.

The Master's Program in Perfusion

MSOE has been educating perfusionists since 1983. Students benefit from the expert faculty members, extensive clinical training, and thorough course work.

MSOE's Master of Science in Perfusion (MSP) degree program is designed for full-time graduate students. A clinical perfusionist operates extra-corporeal circulation (meaning blood outside of the body) equipment during medical situations where it is necessary to support or replace the patient's cardiopulmonary/circulatory functions, such as during open-heart surgery.

Program Details

As with most allied health professionals, advances in biomedical technology have broadened the scope of responsibilities of perfusionists. The rapid and proper application of these technologies demands that the clinical perfusionist of today and tomorrow possess strong academic and clinical skills involving many areas of biomedical technology.

The clinical perfusionist is involved in cardiopulmonary bypass, patient monitoring, blood conservation (cell salvage, modified ultrafiltration and plasmapharesis), intra-aortic balloon pumping (IABP), ventricular assist devices (VAD), total artificial heart placement (TAH), selection of equipment and biomaterials, extra-corporeal membrane oxygenation (ECMO), etc. In addition to a variety of administrative duties, the perfusionist may be responsible for a number of educational and research functions.

Application Deadline: The program will start reviewing applications after December 15 each year for the September class. Applications will be considered until the class is full, after which applicants will have the option of being considered for the waiting list as well as carrying over their application for the following year.

The Milwaukee School of Engineering Advantage

Students enrolled in the Master of Science in Perfusion degree program at MSOE receive a practical, applied, professional graduate education that allows them to immediately apply new knowledge to work challenges both during the program and at program completion. A longitudinal study of mid-career MSOE graduates shows that they continue to outperform their cohorts in both salary and job satisfaction.

MSOE's MSP degree program offers many exciting benefits for students:

- 100% job placement rate

- Starting salaries for entry level perfusionists are often between $75,000 and $100,000

Small class sizes and professor-led classes are another component of the MSOE advantage. Students enjoy great access to professors, allowing for greater feedback and improving students' mastery of core concepts. In addition, the online blended format and tech-savvy faculty members make it easy to communicate with professors via email, Skype, text, and other platforms.

A Modern Campus

Milwaukee School of Engineering's 20 acre campus is located in the east shore neighborhood of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, just minutes from Lake Michigan. Campus features include an athletic field and easy-access parking.

"The Princeton Review" has named MSOE as one of the nation's most environmentally friendly colleges. The solar panels atop the Campus Center develop renewable clean energy.

MSOE's graduates enjoy the highest average starting and mid-career salaries of any Wisconsin university according to Payscale Inc. Affordable Colleges Online ranks MSOE in the top 1% of U.S. colleges as measured by return on investment (ROI). MSOE degree-holders out-earn non-degree holders by at least one million dollars.
