The Doctor of Philosophy degree in Biomedical Engineering in the Henry M. Rowan College of Engineering (HRCOE) emphasizes intensive, novel research within a flexible graduate curriculum with a core focused on technical fundamentals.
With faculty-mentored biomedical research, students are trained to use engineering approaches to solve a novel contemporary biomedical problem in areas including biomaterials engineering, tissue engineering, biomechanics, biomedical robotics, drug delivery, biomolecule detection, and other emerging areas. Students in the biomedical engineering doctoral program benefit from our close association with physicians at Cooper Medical School of Rowan University and Rowan University School of Osteopathic Medicine, which stimulates translation into the clinic.
With world-class research at the forefront of HRCOE’s biomedical engineering discipline, as well as a growing business school on the main campus, HRCOE allows students to take advantage of South Jersey Technology Park at Rowan University, which fosters the translation of applied research into commercial products and processes.
The Doctor of Philosophy degree in Biomedical Engineering at Rowan University requires the completion of 72 hours of graduate level coursework and research credits as well as the successful completion of a novel research project completed under the mentorship of a faculty advisor and culminating in a Doctoral Dissertation. The Doctoral Dissertation should demonstrate the student’s ability to effectively apply engineering principles to solve a contemporary biomedical problem.
