The bioengineering department is creating a fusion of engineering and the life sciences that promotes scientific discovery and the invention of new technologies and therapies through research and education.
The study of bioengineering applies the principles of engineering to the complexities of biological systems in a fusion of studies that promotes scientific discovery and the development of new biomedical technologies and therapies through research and education.
BioE enables students to combine engineering and the life sciences in ways that advance scientific discovery, healthcare and medicine, manufacturing, environmental quality, culture, education and policy.
Bioengineering provides opportunities and resources for students to grow their ideas and achieve their goals.
At its simplest, Stanford Bioengineering pivots on three pillars: Measure, Model, Make. With engineering as a paintbrush and biology as a canvas, Stanford Bioengineering seeks to not only understand, but to create.
