provides a strong, flexible, highly analytical education leading to the Master of Engineering degree in Bioengineering. A Graduate Certificate in Engineering is also available as a post-master's or post-doctoral option to obtain this highly focused education.
Demand for Bioengineers is on the rise and this graduate program offers an outstanding educational opportunity in a strong interdisciplinary infrastructure and collaborative culture that merges engineering applications and principles with the sciences of biology, medicine, and health. It is our belief that developments at the intersection of biology and engineering will advance the efficacy of health care by developing new paradigms for the diagnosis of disease and delivery of new therapeutics. Our students gain the knowledge base and skill sets to synthesize and characterize biomimetic systems; to quantitatively measure and rationally manipulate cells, tissue, and integrated systems; and to develop novel materials for biomedical devices. Bioengineers bring problem solving skills and design methodologies to the study of biology in an effort to translate the biological sciences to medical practice.
