PhD in Bioengineering The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology
The Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) Program in Bioengineering facilitates the close integration of biological, physical, and computational sciences and engineering in the study of biological processes. The programs adopt a systematic and quantitative approach to the study of biological systems. The aim is to provide students with the necessary knowledge to contribute to the biomedical industry as well as to optimize existing bioprocesses, and to develop new biomedical technologies. The Programs are managed by the Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering.
A candidate for a Ph.D. degree is expected to demonstrate mastery of knowledge in the chosen discipline and to synthesize and create new knowledge, making an original and substantial contribution to the discipline.
The multi-disciplinary Bioengineering Program allows students to apply the tools of engineering, computer science, and physical sciences to their study of biological processes. It addresses several major research foci and is supported by state-of-the-art research facilities.
