Additional program details are provided in the Graduate Handbook which is revised at the beginning of each academic year.

Bioengineering M.S.

In collaboration with Tufts Bioengineering Research Center, the department also offers a master's-level degree program in Bioengineering: Cell and Bioprocess Engineering. This interdisciplinary program may be completed within the framework of a thesis, Master of Science (M.S.) degree or as a course-only M.S. An overview of the bioengineering program can be found here.

For additional information about the Cell and Bioprocess Engineering track, please contact the program coordinator, Prof. Kyongbum Lee.

Dual Degree Master's Program (with Tufts Gordon Institute)

Develop your innovation, leadership and management skills and build your technical depth with our Dual Degree Master's Program. You'll earn two degrees: an M.S. offered by the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering, and an M.S. Innovation & Management (MSIM). You earn both degrees in an accelerated timeframe and at a reduced cost. Tufts School of Engineering offers a wide range of M.S. programs and all qualify for the dual degree program.
