The Department of Biomedical Engineering offers graduate programs leading to the following degrees:
- Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical Engineering, from Bachelor’s
- Doctor of Philosophy in Biomedical Engineering, from Master’s
- Masters of Science in Biomedical Engineering, Thesis Option
- Masters of Science in Biomedical Engineering, Non-Thesis Option
We focus on three specific emerging academic and research fields. Students will select one track once admitted to the program.
1. Neural and Rehabilitation Engineering - We focus on neural implants, neurogenesis, neurochips, cognitive engineering, neural signal and image processing and modeling, and brain computer interface from hardware to experimentation.
2. Biomedical Imaging - We focus on in vivo molecular and cellular imaging research with strong emphasis on the imaging of cancer biomarkers, therapy assessment, and cancer biology models etc. We also focus on clinical cardiovascular and brain imaging and develop an advanced interdisciplinary research field based on human cardiovascular and brain imaging.
3. Genomics, Proteomics and Bionano Engineering and Science - We focus on gene regulatory networks, genetics of systems biology, computational biology, and infectious diseases. We also focus on innovative drug discovery and design, translational research and personalized medicine, as well as the recent advances in bionano science and engineering.
The graduate programs are open to all qualified individuals with a Bachelor of Science (B.S.) or Masters of Science (M.S.) in Biomedical Engineering or related field.
