Direct PhD Program


Bioengineering is a multidisciplinary field that weaves together knowledge of physics, chemistry, and engineering to tools for the study of biology and the practice of medicine. This rapidly growing field provides a new level of understanding of biological systems, ranging from the molecular scale to entire organisms, by applying engineering-based analytical and experimental approaches.


The Grass Center for Bioengineering is offering a direct PhD degree in bioengineering. Our 5-year program is open for outstanding students who completed their B.Sc., M.Sc. or M.D. degrees in relevant fields with a GPA of 85 or above.
