Applied Education in the MedTech Industry

RAS Program Curriculum

The RAS curriculum has been developed under the guidance and support of our expert RAS faculty and the industry Advisory Board. Electives were added in 2010 to better serve individual student needs. Courses are also reviewed annually to incorporate new and changing regulatory requirements.

The RAS curriculum includes eight core cores, two electives and a culminating project. With the focus on medical device regulatory affairs, the RAS curriculum provides a deep understanding of the requirements and procedures for FDA and international regulatory submissions, and regulatory compliance activities. In their culminating project, students apply their course learning to a real regulatory project in a medical device company.

The RAS Master's Program requires a total of 33 credits at $779.55 per credit. Students can complete the RAS Program in two years.
