A new collaborative undergraduate Bioengineering concentration under the Biology major in the College of Creative Studies has been launched as a pilot program. For more information on this exciting initiative, please contact Prof. Samir Mitragotri, Chemical Engineering Department and Director of CBE (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Prof. Luke Theogarajan, Electrical & Computer Engineering Department (email@example.com).

At the graduate level, CBE is awaiting approval of a new optional bioengineering emphasis for doctoral students already enrolled at UCSB from both engineering and science departments and programs. CBE hopes to lauch this new emphasis Fall 2013 and it will include curriculum aimed at teaching biology to physical scientists at several levels (molecular, cellular, and tissue) as well as student-run and invited seminars.
