Biological Engineering And Small-scale Technologies

The engineering sciences are undergoing a vast and fundamental metamorphosis from isolated disciplines to more integrative and multidisciplinary topics. Our emphasis offers individualized research-based programs of study in synergistic areas of biological engineering and materials engineering, leading to the Master of Science or Doctor of Philosophy degree under UC Merced’s Individual Graduate Program (IGP).  Research projects are available on topics ranging from fundamental characterization of materials to tissue engineering, and coursework will provide a background in the tools of biologics and integration of modern materials.
