Biomedical Engineering PhD
Students completing their PhD degrees will graduate with a higher level of expertise in transferring their understanding of one of the program focus areas – cardiovascular mechanics/pathology/devices, biomaterials, computation biomedical engineering, or rehabilitation engineering/assistive technology to the creation of new knowledge and applications.
In addition, doctoral students will possess a high level of expertise in their specialized area of research. This competency will be developed through focused research objectives, which culminate in the doctoral dissertation. Graduates of the programs will also demonstrate:
The ability to communicate effectively in written and oral presentations
Intellectual honesty when working with data and ideas
The ability to make an original contribute to their field
