About the Program

Program gives students an in-depth understanding of mathematics, engineering principles, physics, chemistry, physiology, and modern biology. It also aims to: train students to apply basic sciences to biological problems using engineering principles; train students to do bioengineering research and solve problems related to the design and development of diagnostic and therapeutic technologies that improve human health; and train students to apply bioengineering research to commercially viable technologies. Biotechnology Research Centre (BRC) was established to develop international projects and accelerate research and development facilities in our country. The activities of this center are in the fields of cancer biology, microbiology and environmental sciences. BRC carries out projects with international partners such as Imperial College and University of Oxford. Bioengineering M.Sc. students will be supported to take part in these projects and improve themselves. This would help them to become highly experienced scientists and would also contribute to our society in the fields of cancer, microbiology and environment.

Education Opportunities

The program is designed to educate students in using engineering principles for the analysis and manipulation of biological systems to solve problems across a spectrum of important practices. Approved technical electives are chosen by each student in consultation with his/her graduate advisor and can be selected from a range of graduate courses on mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics, biotechnology, nanotechnology, biological processes, cancer research, etc. The research methods course offered to students helps them to improve their research skills. A supervisor who is expert in his/her field is assigned for each student to assist the students in preparing their seminars and designing a study plan to ensure that students receive cohesive education with a focus on a particular bioengineering area. Students carry out their experiments in modern laboratories equipped with high technology tools and equipment.

Career Areas

Bioengineering scientists have made countless revolutionary advances that have changed the way people live. Nowadays, about the emergence of bio-economy indicates that it is time to combine engineering principles with biology to develop new technologies. Research in bioengineering will strengthen our understanding of the basic principles of biological and environmental systems, create novel solutions to current health and environmental problems, and open new pathways for technological innovation. Bioengineering master program covers the fields of genetics, medicine and biotechnology. The program is ideal for professionals who seek greater depth in several areas of bioengineering; who wish to enhance their foundation for employment in all fields of biotechnology; and those who would like to prepare for the Ph.D. program.
