Department of Bioengineering



Graduate Program

The Department of Bioengineering offers high quality training in bioengineering that is flexible and multidisciplinary. A design-based focus permeates every aspect of our training philosophy which can be summarized by the following question: what does the user want and how can I utilize my bioengineering training to achieve this need?

Our academic instruction focuses on developing core competencies in life sciences, quantitative methods, technology, and research methods. Students earn the MS, dual MS, PhD, or MD-PhD degree in Bioengineering with a choice of training tracks in basic research, clinical applications, or commercialization of medical technologies.
