The Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory is training the next generation of research leaders at the interface between engineering, medicine, and biology in the academic, government, and industrial sectors. We have an innovative and integrated approach to educating our Ph.D. students in the classroom, laboratory, and in their professional development. The department is a partnership between Emory University’s School of Medicine and Georgia Tech’s College of Engineering.
To meet the biomedical demands of today’s world, we believe the global biotechnology and bioengineering community should include a highly integrated and interdisciplinary group of engineers and bioscientists; and the BME graduate program here at Georgia Tech is an important contributor to that community. Our program offers students a variety of academic options, depending on how that student wants to participate in this global community.
