Doctor of Philosophy with a Major in Bioengineering
The Bioengineering PhD degree requires a thesis based on independent study of a bioengineering research topic under the guidance of a bioengineering program faculty member.
The Georgia Tech Interdisciplinary Bioengineering (BioE) Graduate Program was established in 1992. Over 170 students have graduated from the program in a broad spectrum of research by our ninety participating faculty from the Colleges of Engineering, Computing, Sciences, and Architecture as well as Emory University School of Medicine.
The BioE Program is interdisciplinary in that it is not a standalone academic unit like most departments or schools at Georgia Tech. Rather, eight different academic units from the Colleges of Engineering and Computing make up the program.
However, the BioE Program provides the degree requirements for students accepted into the program. This approach allows a flexible, integrative, and individualized degree program that enforces depth and breadth in coursework, a solid bioengineering research experience, and yet is reflective of the disciplinary background of the student's home school. Importantly, the BioE Program provides research opportunities for students with any participating program faculty, allowing tremendous diversity and flexibility for research topics and advisors.
