About

Bioengineering graduates from the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign use tools from biology, chemistry, physics and math to solve engineering problems that arise in biological systems related to biomaterials, biomechanics and prosthetics, tissue engineering, molecular modeling, imaging, bioinformatics, nanomedicine, synthetic biology, and drug delivery.

Overview

Overview

The goal of research and education in Bioengineering offered by the University of Illinois at Urbana Champaign is to advance fundamental understanding of how human biological systems function, and to develop effective technology-based solutions to the wide spectrum of societal needs in human development and disease diagnosis, treatment, and prevention.

The Bioengineering department (BIOE) aims to graduate students who:

  • Enter into industry jobs in prominent companies as engineers who work in the areas of:
  • Pursue graduate studies in bioengineering-related fields such as:
  • Broaden their education by attending professional school in areas of medicine, law, and business
  • Maintain professional development through societal memberships and industry workshops

The curriculum includes integration of principles of biology and engineering in coursework such as biomechanics, modeling of human physiology, bioinstrumentation, and cell and tissue engineering. The curriculum is project-based and has a strong emphasis on systems-thinking as an approach to large-scale bioengineering problems. During the first and second years, students take fundamental courses introducing them to bioengineering as a field and introducing clinically relevant projects as learning experiences. The program also features hands-on laboratory courses for real-world experience throughout the curriculum. The final two years allow students to focus on a particular track of Bioengineering for further study. A year-long senior capstone design course provides experience in applying engineering fundamentals to biological problems submitted by faculty, clinicians, and industrial firms.
