The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers a Master of Science degrees in Mechanical and Bioengineering and Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) in Engineering.
Students can concentrate in one of the following areas by taking appropriate courses:
Areas of Bioengineering Research:
|Bioimaging||Medical Devices||Biofluidic Devices|
|Rehabilitation Engineering||Tissue Engineering||Injury Biomechanics|
|Targeted Drug Delivery||Robotics and Computer Assisted Surgery||Fluid flow in constricted arterie|
Most research involves interdisciplinary collaborative projects with other basic sciences and clinical investigators at Temple University and/or other institutions.
In addition to required core courses, students can take certain bioengineering electives. Details of required courses and electives for the M.S. in Bioengineering degree program can be found here . A complete list of graduate courses with descriptions, offered through the College of Engineering, can be found here .
Full-time students can fulfill the degree requirements, usually in 24 months, by either completing the research (master’s thesis or research project) or non-research (coursework-only) option. Thesis research may be mentored by faculty within the College of Engineering, the College of Science and Technology, or the School of Medicine. Alternatively, students may complete a 3 semester hour research project carried out in conjunction with an industrial partner, or a project of interest to a faculty mentor. Students can also complete a coursework-only option with the permission of the relevant department.
