Ne öğreneceğim?

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Program in Bioengineering facilitate the close integration of biological, physical, and computational sciences and engineering in the study of biological processes. The programs adopt a systematic and quantitative approach to the study of biological systems. The aim is to provide students with the necessary knowledge to contribute to the biomedical industry as well as to optimize existing bioprocesses, and to develop new biomedical technologies. The Programs are managed by the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.

A candidate for a PhD degree is expected to demonstrate mastery of knowledge in the chosen discipline and to synthesize and create new knowledge, making an original and substantial contribution to the discipline.

The multi-disciplinary Bioengineering Program allows students to apply the tools of engineering, computer science and physical sciences to their study of biological processes. It addresses several major research foci and is supported with state-of-the-art research facilities.

Research Foci

Biological Information

Engineering Investigates issues associated with new computation concepts and tools involved in medical imaging. Research can also be extended to other data-driven areas, such as health analytics, bioinformatics, protein structure prediction, drug design, and systems biology.

  • Bioprocessing and BioProduct Design
  • Biomaterials and BioMEMS
  • Quantitative Neuroscience and Neural Engineering

Scientific Computation Concentration

Introduction

Scientific computation is among the fastest-growing multidisciplinary research area and it serves as a bridge between the traditional domains of theoretical and experimental sciences. Computation research covers many areas in science and engineering. The multidisciplinary nature of computational science and its wide-ranging scope means that its training and research can best be integrated into different disciplines to equip students with a solid foundation of the knowledge in focused areas. Students can enroll in a particular discipline for research with a special focus in Scientific Computation.

Curriculum

The Scientific Computation Concentration is intended for research postgraduate students who are interested in pursuing research in computation related research.

The general program requirements of the Scientific Computation Concentration are as follows, while the specific course requirements of individual programs involved are provided in the Appendix:

Conduct research in the area of scientific computation.

Give a one-hour seminar on computation related research within the student’s first four regular terms of study.

PhD students are required to complete a minimum of 10 credits from the courses listed below. Of the 10 credits, 6 credits must be from the core course list including the required 1-credit course MATH6915 Scientific Computation Seminar, which can be repeated for up to 2 credits. The credits earned under the concentration will be counted toward the total credit requirements of the programs.

MPhil students are required to complete a minimum of 7 credits from the courses listed below. Of the 7 credits, 3 credits must be from the core course list including the required 1-credit course MATH6915 Scientific Computation Seminar, which can be repeated for up to 2 credits. The credits earned under the concentration will be counted toward the total credit requirements of the programs.
