Overview

WHAT YOU'LL STUDY

Freshmen who major in engineering at Clemson University’s Bioengineering degree are initially admitted into our general engineering program, where you’ll have a year to explore many different engineering disciplines, meet faculty from each of our engineering departments and discover which major fits your personal interests and talents. On the admissions application, you will apply as a general engineering major.

Once into your core bioengineering curriculum, your classes will combine a solid background in engineering with the study of life sciences. From class to the lab, research is integral to a bioengineering career, and our students are encouraged to get involved in research projects as soon as possible. Classes include the study of EKG simulation, tissue engineering of heart valves, medical technology in the developing world and orthopaedic implants — to name a few.

Bioelectrical Concentration

If you opt to go the bioelectrical route, you will become skilled in inventing, improving and maintaining instrumentation and imaging technologies that allow physicians and technicians to monitor patients and perform procedures with greater accuracy and precision and less invasion.

Biomaterials Concentration

If you choose to specialize in biomaterials, you’ll study the development of devices from stable or biodegradable materials to replace damaged tissues. Some examples include artificial joints and growing new body parts with patient cells.

Combined Bachelor’s/Master’s Plan

Jump-start your Master of Science in bioengineering while completing your bachelor’s. In our dual-degree program, you can apply some graduate credits to both degrees.
