Bioscience and Biomedical Engineering

项目介绍

Bioscience is a diverse but often converging field of study that applies knowledge to develop biological solutions to sustain, restore, and improve the quality of life for humans, plants, and animals. Biomedical Engineering is the application of engineering principles and design concepts to biology and medicine for advanced healthcare in diagnostics, monitoring, and therapy. Bioscience and Biomedical Engineering are strongly interdisciplinary which involve Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Mathematics, IT and Computer Science.

The Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) Programs in Bioscience and Biomedical Engineering aim to provide a well-rounded education as well as rigorous research training to prepare students to become versatile and knowledgeable professionals. Areas of research include regenerative medicine and tissue engineering, molecular and cell biology, precision medicine, plant biology, Chinese medicine, healthy aging, biostatistics, bioinformatics and data mining.

PhD graduates should be capable of conducting high-quality original research, creating new knowledge, deriving valuable insights, and making tangible impacts in academia and the field.

On successful completion of the PhD program, graduates will be able to:

  1. Exhibit graduate-level mastery of basic theoretical knowledge and experimental methods in bioscience and biomedical engineering, as well as advanced expertise within the chosen specialty;
  2. Formulate a hypothesis and conduct original research using appropriate tools and techniques within their focused area of study to test the hypothesis;
  3. Master the analytical and methodological skills needed to evaluate and conduct research;
  4. Draw on previously published work to independently design and execute new experiments with a high degree of sophistication; and
  5. Teach courses in the areas of specialization at the undergraduate level.

To qualify for admission, applicants must meet all of the following requirements. Admission is selective and meeting these minimum requirements does not guarantee admission.1. General Admission Requirements of the University
