The Department of Bioengineering from Santa Clara University currently offers a M.S. degree program with a focus on biodevice engineering, biomaterials and tissue engineering, and biomolecular engineering.


The School of Bioengineering from Santa Clara University offers master’s programs in applied mathematics, Bioengineering, civil engineering, computer science and engineering, software engineering, electrical engineering, engineering management, mechanical engineering and sustainable energy. The coursework requirements for the degree are determined by each of the major departments. In order to graduate, students must complete the required coursework for the program to which they are admitted and must have a cumulative GPA of 3.0 in all coursework listed on their approved program of study.

Learning Outcomes

To qualify for the degree of Master of Science in Bioengineering, students must complete a minimum of 45 quarter units, including required core and elective courses, within the School of Engineering. Required and elective courses for the bioengineering programs are provided below. Students undertaking thesis work are required to engage in research that results, for example, in the development of a new method or approach to solve a bioengineering relevant problem, or a technical tool, a design criteria, or a biomedical application. This work should be documented in a journal publication, conference, or research report, and must also be included in a Master's thesis. Alternatively, students may elect to take only courses to fulfill the requirement for the M.S. degree.
