Bioengineers graduating from our program will have a solid foundation in both engineering and life sciences, as well as a strong sense for translational bioengineering research. Our students will be trained to understand and employ in a real world setting basic and applied knowledge from diverse areas of engineering and sciences, such as thermodynamics, biomechanics, bioinformatics, bioimaging, bioprocessing, fluid mechanics, polymer chemistry, biomaterials and tissue engineering. They will also gain an understanding of cellular, molecular and regenerative engineering.
This knowledge will enable our graduates to join and lead interdisciplinary teams of engineers, scientists and clinicians to solve fundamental problems in the world around us. These problems include the design of innovative medical devices and diagnostic equipment, smart biomaterials, novel bioimaging modalities to detect and predict diseases such as cancer, renewable bioenergy, ecological engineering and other areas that improve the quality of global health care and the standard of living throughout the world.
