Neural Engineering, Neuroengineering, or is a relatively new and rapidly developing field that employs techniques to understand, repair, replacement, correcting or treating the neural system diseases, such as stroke and epilepsy. There are several schools in the United States, offering Masters and doctoral courses that are geared towards this area.
Pennsylvania State University
Penn State offers a ph. d. in Neural Engineering in its engineering science and mechanics Department (ESM). Neural Engineering PhD course requires prior knowledge of the nervous system, together with proven basic engineering skills, such as applied mathematics, electrical and magnetic interactions with biological tissue, and the ability to use signal processing to analyze and interpret the neural activity. Former ESM students who have earned a BS degree must complete 42 credits include 24 course credits in ESM Department. ESM students who enter the program with a m.s. degree are required to complete 18 course credits, including 12 points in the ESM Department. Neural Engineering students from other schools will have programs designed specifically for them.

University of Southern California
At the University of Southern Californina (USC), a Master of Science in Biomedical Engineering with a specialty in Neuroengineering can be completed by a full-time student for one year after obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree. This master’s degree provides students with a broad and general context, linking Physiology with engineering, and prepares them for a career in the field of neuroengineering or higher level studies.

Johns Hopkins University
Johns Hopkins University offers a four-year-old Neuro-Engineering Training Initiative (Neti) program that balances technology, mathematics and computer science with molecular, cellular and systems neuroscience. The program combines educational and research resources from the school’s engineering and medical departments. Neti students can choose between a “sequential curriculum” and a “mixed curriculum.” The sequential curriculum requires that the first year consists of medical school course and the second year consists of mathematics and engineering courses; This track is best suited for students who want a stronger life and clinical science perspective. The joint curriculum blends Mathematics/Engineering and life science courses in the first two years. This program is recommended for students who are looking for strong engineering or basic science perspectives. Students serving as teaching assistants during the third and fourth years, and let the research from the second year until the end of their necessary papers.
