Graduate Program—To train the next generation of leaders in bioengineering, we have built an innovative teaching program that transcends boundaries between bioengineering, basic science, and clinical medicine, integrating the academic, industrial, and societal perspectives. Our hands-on approach to education is supported by a long standing tradition of cross-disciplinary research and education. The Rice bioengineering program is a comprehensive training program that provides student with: A fundamental understanding of the life and medical sciences Advanced analytical and engineering capabilities Translational research capability for transferring biotechnical advances from bench to bedside With this educational background, graduates will be well prepared to participate in independent or collaborative research and development endeavors in industry or academia. MS Program Candidates for the MS degree must: Show evidence on their undergraduate transcript of completion of fundamentals of systems physiology, cell biology, and statistics. (If courses were not taken for an undergraduate degree, they must be completed at the beginning of the MS program. Only one of these courses may be used as credit toward the 30 hours of required courses.) Complete at least 18 approved semester hours of foundation, supporting, and advanced courses while maintaining a grade point average of 3.0 A total of 30 credit graduate level hours are required. MS students must earn additional credits they need for graduation by registering for the master’s research course BIOE 500 during the terms they are engaged in research.
