Newly Approved Interdisciplinary PhD Emphasis in Bioengineering
The optional PhD bioengineering emphasis for doctoral students already enrolled at UCSB in both engineering and science departments and programs was approved for implementation Fall 2013. (list of participating departments, programs, and faculty). The new emphasis includes structured curriculum aimed at teaching biology to physical scientists at several levels (molecular, cellular, and tissue) as well as both a student-run and invited seminar series aimed at providing a community for students engaged in bioengineering related research on campus. The new courses are open to all graduate students interested in bioengineering.
For more information, please contact Henry Covarrubias, Graduate Advisor & Emphasis Coordinator for the optional bioengineering emphasis.
New Undergraduate Bioengineering concentration for CCS Biology majors
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 Henry Covarrubias, Student Affairs Offficer in CBE.
Application procedures via The College of Creative Studies
Additionally, CBE faculty teach bioengineering related courses, both undergraduate and graduate, in many departments and programs across both engineering and the sciences at UCSB including Chemical Engineering, Chemistry/Biochemistry, Materials Sciences, Molecular/Cellular/Developmental Biology, Physics, Mechanical Engineering and Electrical Engineering.
CBE continues to explore additional avenues to advance bioengineering education at UCSB.
