The Biomaterials track involves the study of the interaction of biomaterials with their environment in the context of biomedical applications. Students will be encouraged to focus their studies on one of several bio-medically relevant topics, including tissue engineering, biological delivery, or the interaction of biomaterials with mammalian tissues. The nature of this track will require students to select courses from a number of departments.

Track requirements

In addition to the four core credit requirements, students in this track must also take:

  • BME-153 Biomaterials and Regenerative Medicine
  • BME-165 Principles of Controlled Release and Drug Delivery
  • 4 Elective Credits

Elective Credits in Biomaterials
