Graduate Study. The Graduate Group in Biomedical Engineering offers programs of study and research leading to the M.S. and Ph.D. degrees. The programs of study prepare students for professional work in the effective integration of engineering with medical and biological sciences. Research strengths lie in the areas of imaging, tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, sensor and MEMs systems, cellular and molecular mechanics, computational modeling, targeted therapeutics, orthopedic biomechanics, biofluids and transport, and human movement. This broad interdepartmental program is best suited for students who are capable of and comfortable with considerable independence. Each student, together with an adviser, defines a specific course of study suited to individual goals.

Preparation. The Group regards strong competence in mathematics and engineering as necessary for successful completion of study. Prior course work in these areas is emphasized in the evaluation of applications. Some undergraduate training can be acquired after admission to the Group, but it may require an additional year of study.

Courses. See Engineering: BiomedicalEngineering: Biomedical, on page 271.
