Program Description:


This program offers students interdisciplinary educational and research opportunities in bioengineering. The program offers research opportunities in collaboration with faculty of the College of Science and Technology, School of Medicine, School of Pharmacy, Fox School of Business and Management, and the Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Areas of bioengineering research include:

  • Bioimaging
  • Biomaterials & Biopolymers
  • Biomechanics and Cellular Mechanics
  • Biosensors & Bioinstrumentation
  • Drug Delivery Systems
  • Medical and Microfluidics Devices
  • Molecular Engineering
  • Nanotechnology & Nanomedicine
  • Neuroengineering
  • Orthopedics
  • Polymer Engineering
  • Regenerative Medicine and Engineering
  • Stem Cell Engineering
  • Tissue Engineering


Most research involves interdisciplinary collaborative projects with other basic sciences and clinical investigators at Temple University and/or other institutions. In addition to required core courses, students can take certain bioengineering and related electives.

The M.S. in Bioengineering can be completed on a full-time or part-time basis. Students can fulfill the degree requirements by either completing the research (master’s thesis or research project) or non-research (coursework-only) option. Thesis research may be mentored by faculty within the College of Engineering, the College of Science and Technology, or the School of Medicine. Alternatively, students may complete a 3 semester hour research project carried out in conjunction with an industrial partner, or a project of interest to a faculty mentor. Students can also complete a coursework-only option with the permission of the department graduate coordinator.



International Student Requirements:

For applicants whose native language is not English, a minimum score of 213 on the computer-based test, 550 on the paper-based test, and 79 on the internet-based test on the TOEFL, or a 6.5 on the academic version of the IELTS is required. International applicants must submit an official transcripts and a copy of the degree, diploma, or certificate awarded whereby the academic institution validates completion and conferral. Transcripts from all post-secondary institutions must be submitted for the applicant by the university, even if only one course was taken. Applicants who attended institutions that do not issue complete academic records in English must submit official copies of native language records and literal translations into English prepared by an appropriate university or government official.
