Distinctive Curriculum

We conduct interdisciplinary research across academic disciplines. In addition to lectures that cover the cutting edge of each academic field, we offer the following courses that are unique to our department.

Introductory Bioengineering Lectures

Students can systematically learn the fundamentals of bioengineering in six core areas: mechanobioengineering, biodevices, bioelectronics, bioimaging, chemical bioengineering, and biomaterials. Students who did not specialize in bioengineering as an undergraduate can gain fundamental knowledge for working in the field of bioengineering by taking these introductory courses.

Introductory Bioengineering Lectures

Bioengineering exercise for social implementation

This course focuses on innovation and entrepreneurship and what is needed to commercialize technology seeds in the bio-medical field. The course consists of a mixture of skill-set and leadership lectures with a focus on team work. This group work culminates in the presentation of a commercialization plan for a specific opportunity identified, scaled and developed, by the group, over the series of lectures.

Special Programs

Special programs with financial support from the Department of Bioengineering through the master's and doctoral programs are available. Each program also has a curriculum that includes internships with companies and overseas. Many students who have entered the doctoral program in this department have actively participated in these programs.
