Doctor of Philosophy with a Major in Bioengineering

This program is interdisciplinary in scope, where advanced courses in engineering specialties, life sciences, and bioengineering are combined with training in biomedical research. The PhD in bioengineering is being offered by the College of Engineering. Students select a home school within the College of Engineering (Aerospace Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Civil Engineering, Materials Science and Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and/or Polymer, Textile and Fiber Engineering). Only students selecting biomedical engineering as their home school are reviewed and admitted by the Department of Biomedical Engineering. The department participates in the Bioengineering program only at the PhD level (no MS considered or admitted). High-quality students with engineering or non-engineering backgrounds (degrees in computer science, physics, chemistry, biology, or mathematics, or physicians with undergraduate degrees in engineering or the physical sciences) are eligible to apply to the program.
