The School of Biomedical Engineering, Science and Health Systems is a nationally recognized center of research and graduate education. It offers multidisciplinary graduate instruction and research on both a full- and part-time basis.
The faculty includes individuals with engineering, physics, mathematics, biostatistics, life science, medical, and clinical specialties. Multidisciplinary research is carried out through collaboration among Drexel University faculty members and with several medical schools and hospitals in the Philadelphia area.
For graduate students, the School offers master's of science (MS) programs in Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Science as well as PhD programs in Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Science. Areas of specialization available or under development include biomechanics, rehabilitation, biomaterials and tissue engineering, biosensors and biomedical imaging, biostatistics, genome science and bioinformatics, human factors and performance engineering, neuroengineering, and systems biology.
In addition to courses offered by the School, various departments at Drexel University offer courses specifically designed for graduate students in Biomedical Engineering and Biomedical Science. These courses permit students to acquire advanced knowledge needed for graduate research or for a future career in highly specialized fields.
