2 2 Departments / Bioengineering Degrees offered: BSB, MBE, MS, PhD Graduate programs in bioengineering offer concentrations in areas such as biomedical imaging and diagnostics, cellular and biomolecular engineering, computational and theoretical bioengineering, drug delivery and biomaterials, supramolecular biophysics and bioengineering, and tissue engineering and biomechanics. Research areas include biomechanical engineering, biological systems modeling, bioinformatics, biomaterials, biomedical lasers, cellular and molecular engineering, controlled release technologies, metabolic engineering, spectroscopy, statistical mechanics, systems engineering and instrumentation, thrombosis, tissue engineering, and transport processes. Undergraduate Program The overall goal of the BS degree in bioengineering is to prepare students to succeed in professional careers by equipping them with the conceptual and technical expertise sought after by top graduate and medical schools, as well as by companies seeking technical skills in bioengineering. The educational program objectives that students are expected to exhibit or achieve after graduation with the BS degree in bioengineering from Rice University are: Critical problem solving skills Fundamental understanding of math and the natural, life, and medical sciences Knowledge of bioengineering principles and their applications Ability to conduct scientific inquiry in bioengineering Ability to design solutions to real-world engineering problems Ability to communicate and work effectively with others Preparation for professional challenges that arise in a rapidly-changing field The BSB degree is organized around a core of required courses and a selection of three technical elective courses. Because of the number of options, students should consult early with departmental advisors to plan a program that meets their needs. Degree Requirements for BS in Bioengineering For general university requirements, see Graduation Requirements (pages 16 19). The curriculum for a BS degree in bioengineering requires 94 credit hours, which count toward the total of 134 hours required to graduate. Preparation As freshmen, students considering a major in bioengineering should take MATH 101 and 102, CHEM 121 and 122, PHYS 101 or PHYS 125, PHYS 102 or PHYS 126, and CAAM 210. Sophomore students should take MATH 211 and 212, CHEM 211, BIOS 201, ELEC 243 and MECH 211. BIOE 252 should be taken in the 1st semester of the sophomore year. BIOE 330, BIOE 320, and BIOE 322 should be taken the second semester of the sophomore year. Students majoring in bioengineering must complete the following courses. Core Courses BIOE 330 Bioreaction Engineering Bioengineering BIOE 332 Thermodynamics BIOE 252 Bioengineering Fundamentals BIOE 342 Tissue Culture Laboratory BIOE 320 Systems Physiology BIOE 370 Biomaterials BIOE 372 Biomechanics BIOE 322 Fundamentals of Systems Physiology BIOE 383 Biomedical Engineering Instrumentation

Three technical elective courses, at least two of which must be at the senior level, will be required. All three elective courses must be engineering courses. A combination of technical electives must be selected that meets a minimum of six engineering points. The technical elective courses and their engineering points are announced during registration each semester. Undergraduate Minor The Department of Bioengineering collaborates with a number of departments to offer Rice undergraduate students a minor in global health technologies (GLHT) through the Beyond Traditional Borders (BTB) initiative a unique, multidisciplinary program to educate and train students to reach beyond traditional disciplinary and geographic boundaries to understand, address, and solve global health disparities. With complementary contributions from the humanities, social sciences, policy, bioscience, and engineering programs at Rice, the GLHT minor prepares students to integrate diverse perspectives as they develop solutions to the complex problems of global health, using the formal approach of the engineering design process. See GLOBAL HEALTH TECHNOLOGIES in the Departments and Interdisciplinary Programs section for minor requirements. Graduate Program To train the next generation of leaders in bioengineering, we have built an innovative teaching program that transcends boundaries between bioengineering, basic science, and clinical medicine, integrating the academic, industrial, and societal perspectives. Our hands-on approach to education is supported by a long standing tradition of cross-disciplinary research and education. The Rice bioengineering program is a comprehensive training program that provides student with:
4 4 Departments / Bioengineering A fundamental understanding of the life and medical sciences Advanced analytical and engineering capabilities, Translational research that transfers biotechnical advances from bench to bedside With this educational background, graduates will be well prepared to participate in independent or collaborative research and development endeavors in industry or academia. Degree Requirements for MBE and MS and PhD in Bioengineering For general university requirements, see Graduate Degrees (pages 61 62). To make sure scores are available when admission decisions are made, applicants need to register to take the GRE and TOEFL as required before September for the year in which they are applying. Applicants should request transcripts and letters of recommendation before September, as well, to give senders time to get the material to Rice University by the January 15 deadline. The Graduate Admissions Committee begins its deliberations in late November. Application materials received after the January 15 deadline will not be considered. Once admitted, departmental policy requires full-time students to be registered for at least 12 credit hours each semester. MBE Program The Master of Bioengineering degree is intended for those having a BA or BS degree in an engineering or science discipline. To obtain a Master of Bioengineering degree, the following requirements must be completed. Show evidence on their undergraduate transcript of completion of fundamentals of systems physiology, cell biology, and statistics. (If courses were not taken for an undergraduate degree, they must be completed at the beginning of the MBE program. Only one of these courses may be used as credit toward the 30 hours of required courses.) Curriculum has to be approved by the Academic Affairs Committee of the bioengineering department. This will be done on a case-by-case basis. A total of 30 credit hours is required (courses must be above and beyond the requirement for the undergraduate degree). Of these 30 hours, at least 24 must be taken at Rice. At least 15 credit hours must be taken as BIOE courses. Required courses include: Five BIOE courses (15 hours) Graduate-level or higher MATH, STAT, or CAAM course (3 hours) Two additional engineering course (6 hours) Two additional elective courses approved by the Academic Affairs Committee (6 hours). Maintain an average GPA of 3.0 or higher. Completion of 3 credit hours of one additional engineering course, and Completion of 9 credit hours of additional courses approved by the Academic Affairs Committee Maintain an average GPA of 3.0 or higher.
5 Bioengineering 5 MS Program Candidates for the MS degree must: Complete at least 18 approved semester hours of foundation, supporting, and advanced courses while maintaining a grade point average of 3.0 MS students must earn additional credits they need for graduation by registering for the master s research course BIOE 600 during the terms they are engaged in research. Fulfill a teaching requirement Submit an original research thesis Defend the thesis in a public oral examination PhD Program Candidates for the PhD degree must: Show evidence on their undergraduate transcript of completion of fundamentals of systems physiology, cell biology, and statistics.

Complete at least 30 approved semester hours of foundation, supporting, and advanced courses with high standing. Fulfill a teaching requirement. After their first semester in residence, students may be asked to spend the equivalent of six to 10 hours per week for a total of three semesters on teaching assignments. Submit a thesis proposal. PhD students must submit and successfully defend their thesis proposals by the end of their fourth semester in residence. Submit a thesis that provides evidence of their ability to carry out original research in a specialized area of bioengineering. Defend the thesis in a public oral examination.
