About the Program

Program give students an in-depth understanding of mathematics, engineering principles, physics, chemistry, physiology, and modern biology; To train students to apply basic sciences to biological problems using engineering principles, to 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 to train students to apply bioengineering research to commercially viable technologies. To develop international projects and accelerate research and development facilities in our country, Biotechnology Research Centre (BRC) was established. The activities of this center are in the fields of Cancer biology, microbiology and environmental sciences. BRC carries out projects with international partners as Imperial College and University of Oxford. Bioengineering MSc students will be supported to have parts in these projects and improve themselves. By this way they would be highly experienced scientists and would also help to our society in the fields of cancer, microbiology and environment.

Education Opportunities

The program is designed to educate students to use engineering principles in the analysis and manipulation of biological systems to solve problems across a spectrum of important applications. Approved technical electives are chosen by a student in consultation with his/her graduate advisor and can be selected from graduate course offerings in mathematics, statistics, engineering, physics, biotechnology, nanotechnology, biological processes and cancer research etc. Research methods course offered to the students to improve their research abilities. A supervisor who is expert in his/her field is assigned for each students and assists the student in preparing his/her seminar and in designing a plan of study that creates a cohesive degree program with a concentration in a particular bioengineering focus area. Students carry out their experiments in modern laboratories equipped with high technology equipments.

Career Areas

Scientists in Bioengineering have made countless revolutionary advances that have changed the way people live. Nowadays we talk about bioeconomy and this is the time to combine engineering principles with biology to develope new technologies. Research in Bioengineering will strengthen our understanding of the basic principals of biological and environmental systems, create novel solutions to today's health and environmental problems, and open new avenues for technological innovation Bioengineering master program covers the genetics, medical and biotechnology fields. The Master program is ideal for professionals seeking greater depth in several areas of bioengineering who wish to enhance their foundation for employment in all biotechnology fields and prepare students for PhD program.
