Prospective Graduate Students
The Bioengineering Graduate Program curricula are structured to provide:
CORE foundational bioengineering knowledge and skills that include responsible & ethical conduct of research and a Colloquium designed to keep students and faculty abreast of current research and real world applications.
KNOWLEDGE DEPTH that consists of coursework chosen by the student and mentor that provides a solid foundation of both knowledge and analytical skills in the student's particular track and research interests.
KNOWLEGDE BREADTH that includes coursework in a variety of supporting fields including engineering, biological sciences, medicine, and other areas. Courses are chosen by the student and mentor to create a broad, supporting knowledge to both the conduct of research and its application.
Program Goals & Objectives
- Provide students with an in-depth understanding of mathematics, engineering principles, physics, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, computation, and modern biology; and
Train students to:
- apply basic sciences to medical and biological problems, using engineering principles;
- recognize and provide engineering solutions to clinical problems;
- be able to do research on bioengineering problems of national significance;
- apply bioengineering research to commercially-viable problems; and
- teach bioengineering at the graduate and undergraduate levels.
Two departments currently offer bioengineering concentrations within their bachelor's degree programs:
