Program Description:

Clemson University's bioengineering program is one of the oldest in the world and began in 1963 with the approval of a PhD program in bioengineering. An MS program was added in 1966, and bioengineering became a separate division within the Graduate School in 1968. In 1978, departmental status was granted with the formation of the Department of Interdisciplinary Studies. This department was subsequently renamed the Department of Bioengineering in 1984. Historically, the department is widely recognized to have pioneered the field of Biomaterials.
