Bioengineering brings together knowledge and application of engineering, biology and medicine to improve human health through devices or procedures that solve medical problems. This program trains solid Temple engineers through focus on applying engineering science, design, and analysis to real life problems specifically in the areas of biology and medicine. Careers in bioengineering can lead you down many different paths including continued study and research of medical innovations, medical devices, imaging systems, and many other options.
This firm engineering foundation will be further enhanced with the latest in bioengineering courses with specialization pathways, such as:
- Biomaterials: A focus on the design, development, and uses of biomaterials in biology and medicine. It also explores the host-biomaterial interface and interactions
- Bioimaging: A focus on design, development, and uses of imaging modalities and techniques in biology
- Bioinstrumentation: A focus on the design, development, and use of instruments used to record, process, and/or control biological functions
- Biomechanics: A focus on the interaction between forces and motions in tissues, organisms, and biomedical materials
- Tissue Engineering: A focus on building functional tissues using cells and scaffolds and repairing diseased tissues and organs at the cellular and molecular level
- Neuroengineering: A focus on using engineering to understand and interact with neural tissues
- Pre-med: A broad-based bioengineering curriculum which fulfills current pre-med course requirements
