Master of Science in Bioengineering

The Georgia Tech Interdisciplinary Bioengineering Graduate Program was established in 1992. Over 200 students have graduated from the program in a broad spectrum of research by our 147 Faculty  from the Colleges of Engineering, Computing, Sciences, and Design as well as Emory University School of Medicine.

The BioE Program is interdisciplinary in that it is not a standalone academic unit like most departments or schools at Georgia Tech. Rather, eight different academic units from the Colleges of Engineering and Computing make up the program.

However, the BioE Program provides the degree requirements for students accepted into the program. This approach allows a flexible, integrative, and individualized degree program that enforces depth and breadth in coursework, a solid bioengineering research experience, and yet is reflective of the disciplinary background of the student's home school. Importantly, the BioE Program provides research opportunities for students with any participating program faculty, allowing tremendous diversity and flexibility for research topics and advisors.

Students who wish to pursue a Master's degree in Bioengineering may also do so through the College of Computing. The specific requirements differ from those of the Computer Science Master's program, and while the degree is granted from the College, applications for this program are processed through the Bioengineering Center of the Office of Interdisciplinary Programs.
