Biomedical Engineering

Bioengineering - Biomaterials (MS)

The Biomaterials track of the Bioengineering MS degree 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.

Biomedical Engineering (Certificate, BS, MS, PhD)

Biomedical engineering combines intensive training in research methods, techniques, and practical skills with a solid science and engineering curriculum that provides breadth and depth in the field. A key aspect of biomedical engineering is its interdisciplinary nature; introductory courses in mathematics, biology, chemistry, and physics, and foundation/concentration courses build the basis for creating the synergy among these disciplines that is required in the practice of biomedical engineering.

Biophotonics (Certificate and MS)

Biophotonics is an interdisciplinary field that encompasses the design, engineering, and application of optical tools to study biological materials and processes. Research in this domain utilizes light-based technologies to improve diagnostics and therapeutics, as well as the application of advanced microscopes for quality control in manufacturing processes.

Cellular Agriculture (Certificate)

Tufts' Certificate in Cellular Agriculture program trains skilled workers to advance research and commercial products in fields as varied as food science, biotechnology, tissue engineering, synthetic biology, biomedical engineering, and more. The certificate program addresses the industry's need for highly trained professionals and prepares students to enact change in food sustainability, personalized nutrition, and food security.

Materials Science and Engineering (PhD)

Materials scientists study how the history of a material influences its structure and properties, advancing understanding in research areas that include metallurgy, solid-state physics, and biomaterials. The interdisciplinary Materials Science and Engineering program offers graduate students a wide array of opportunities to study and develop materials that will change the world.
