New Bioengineering graduate major:
Bioengineering is an interdisciplinary field that applies engineering principles and quantitative methods to the advancement of knowledge at the molecular, cellular, tissue, organ, and system levels, and to the development of new biologicals, materials, devices, and processes.
The main objective is to provide students with graduate training in bioengineering, including broad exposure to the discipline through course work and seminars, as well as a focused research experience. The program will provide students with resources and faculty expertise to conduct advanced studies in the core areas of biomaterials, biomedical devices and instrumentation, human performance engineering, medical imaging, and systems and computational biology.
The interdisciplinary graduate program in Bioengineering offers the Master's of Science (MS), Master's of Engineering (MEng), and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degrees.
Students enrolled in the MEng and MS degree programs will complete at least 45 graduate credits. For students in the MS program, 12 of those credits must be thesis credits (BIOE 503).
Students enrolled in the PhD program will complete at least 108 graduate credits. At least 36 of those credits must be non-blanket course work, and at least 36 must be thesis credits (BIOE 603).
Students in all Bioengineering graduate programs (MEng, MS and PhD) will be required to complete the program core curriculum for a total of 15 credits. The remaining credits required for completion of the degree program will be electives, and may include courses in science, mathematics, engineering or other topics (e.g., entrepreneurship).
All students will submit a program of study during their first quarter in the program specifying the elective courses they plan to take to complete their degree requirements. Programs of study will be reviewed by a committee of BIOE program faculty to ensure that the program has sufficient breadth and depth in the context of the student’s planned research activities.
