Certificate in Biomaterials Engineering
The Certificate in Biomaterials Engineering will prepare engineering students to work in biomaterials related jobs and disciplines. Students will be provided the opportunity to pursue educational objectives beyond those normally associated with their academic major in engineering. Certificate holders will be trained in various skills in order to design, synthesize, process, characterize, analyze, deploy, and select materials for bio-engineering applications ranging from tissue engineering to implantable devices to prosthetic devices.
The 12 credit hour Certificate in Biomaterials Engineering will be offered as a stand-alone certificate. Many of the courses offered for the certificate program can be counted towards engineering technical elective requirements for graduation within the students major.
