The Department of Bioengineering at CU Denver-Anschutz offers multidisciplinary training for MS and PhD degrees. Students learn from researchers, clinicians, and entrepreneurs. A design-based focus defines our training philosophy: what does the user want and how can I use my training to achieve this goal? Bioengineering will be one of the fastest growing job markets over the next decade. Students receive instruction from faculty in the CU System, including CU Boulder and CU School of Medicine. Our instruction focuses on developing core competencies in life sciences, quantitative methods, technology, and research methods. After intensive study of the Bioengineering Core, students choose elective courses, training pathways, and research or internships to fit talents, preparation, and career plans. Training tracks include basic research, clinical applications, and entrepreneurship. We are located on the new 227 acre/$2.5 billion biomedical campus which serves 500,000 patients and generates $380 million in research funding annually.
