Welcome to Bioengineering at the UC Merced!
The Bioengineering graduate program offers individualized research-based programs of study in synergistic area of bioengineering, leading to Doctor of Philosophy degrees (M.S. students are also allowed, but not preferred) under UC Merced’s Individual Graduate Program (IGP). Research projects are available on topics ranging from synthesis and characterization of materials, biomedical imaging to regenerative medicine and tissue engineering.
Our Bioengineering faculty take pride in combining exceptional teaching with state-of-the-art research to advance the education and research of this interdisplinary program. Our researchers are actively participating both within and beyond the university community to apply enginering principles to solutions in medicince and technology. It is my hope you will explore our site and reach out to me to so we can partner in deciding how to make UC Merced the next stop in your educational journey.
