Lehigh's M.S. and Ph.D. in Bioengineering trains students to combine life and physical sciences and engineering to develop effective and affordable solutions for health care and biotechnology problems.

Addressing the modern challenges of healthcare requires innovators who combine life and physical sciences with engineering to diagnose and treat disease more effectively and affordably. Lehigh's bioengineering graduate program trains students to work across these disciplines -- offering diverse opportunities for advanced studies and research. The program's thrust themes are Biocomputations and Modeling; Diagnostics, Sensors and Devices; and Materials and Therapies.

Ongoing research conducted by faculty members represents a broad palette of research opportunities in areas such as:

  • Bioelectronics/photonics and bioimaging
  • Biomaterials
  • Biomedical image analysis
  • Point-of-care diagnostics
  • Bioinformatics/genomics
  • Biomechanics (biomolecular, cellular, fluid, and solid mechanics)
  • BioMEMs/biosensors
  • Cell and tissue engineering
  • Computational bioengineering
  • Bioengineering systems and controls
  • Biopharmaceutical engineering
  • Biological system modeling

Bioengineering research is supported by the NSF, NIH, and other federal and state agencies. Additionally, Lehigh's bioengineering faculty engage with regional and national hospitals and medical schools, and biotech industry firms.
