What You’ll Learn
- Bioengineering: Immerse yourself in advances in micro- and nano-technologies, wireless communication and power transfer, sensor miniaturization, on-chip real-time signal processing, and mathematical modeling of biological systems that will allow you to develop smart, high-performance systems that are dependable, efficient, and secure.
- Electrical and Computer Engineering: Tackle fundamentals and advanced theory in robotics, microelectronics, micro and nano systems, control systems, image and signal processing, computer networks, and radar and communications systems.
- Mechanical Engineering: Research and coursework provide technology-infused training in solid mechanics, heat transfer and thermofluid systems, energy systems, biomechanics and biomedical devices, micro/nano sensors, controls, and dynamic systems.
To successfully complete the program, you will need to pass both the qualifying examination and the preliminary dissertation proposal—typically in the summer after your third year.
