The history of bioengineering at Stanford University spans more than four decades, during which distinguished faculty in departments throughout the university have made important research contributions. In order to meet the growing interest in the field among students and faculty alike, Stanford offers programs focusing on specialized areas of bioengineering, including:
- biochemical engineering
- biomedical computation
- medical devices
Mirroring the intent of the newly formed Department of Bioengineering, the concentration will look to attract students who are enthusiastic about combining biology-based research with engineering technology and clinical applications.
