BioEngineering Expo 2011

Primary tabs

An open house, or Expo, will be held to highlight all aspects of the BioEngineering Program and celebrate the successes of this unique graduate student program. There will be research featured from various program faculty and the event conclude with a poster session and reception.

This event is an excellent opportunity for incoming graduate graduate students to learn about the flexibility and novelty of the bioengineering graduate program. In addition, this community-building event is an occasion for current BioEngineering graduate students and program faculty to learn about the breadth of research taking place.

BioEngineering is the merging of engineering with biological and medical science in the study of complex living systems (human and non-human). Bioengineering research at Georgia Tech focuses on the development of innovative or improved physical and mathematical concepts and techniques that may be applied to problems in medicine and biology, including the fundamental study of biological phenomena and the development of new medical devices.


The BioE PhD program is a unique and interdisciplinary program ranked 2nd in the nation by US News and World Report. Students apply through one of the 9 participating Georgia Tech home schools or departments and students are free to work with any of the 90+ participating program faculty members.  The BioE graduate program is the most innovative program available at Georgia Tech, giving the students the flexibility and creativity to create their own future.
