Temple University’s College of Engineering is continuing the rapid expansion of its research and education endeavors, including the recently completed renovation of two floors of the Engineering Building with a total of 25,000 square feet of state-of-the-art research, education, and office space, much of which is occupied by the newly established Department of Bioengineering. Our College is up 10 spots in US News Best Grad Schools with our #TempleBioE department ranked highest in the College. Since its inception in 2012, the Bioengineering Department inaugurated the graduate (MSc/PhD) program (Fall 2012) and launched the undergraduate program (Fall 2013). We recently graduated the second cohort of seniors. Overall, our current student body includes 300 undergraduate and 50 graduate students. The core faculty is comprised of 3 Full Professors, 3 Associate Professors and 5 Assistant Professors.

 

Candidates in all bioengineering areas are welcome to apply, we are particularly interested in the areas of Biomaterials, Regenerative Medicine and Tissue Engineering, Neuroengineering, Biosignals, Biomechanics, and Bioinstrumentation to further solidify our existing areas of strengths.
