    Welcome

    The Rice University Department of Bioengineering is a top-tier teaching and research institution with a faculty committed to excellence in education, interdisciplinary, basic and translational research. Our undergraduate program is ranked fifth and our graduate program is ranked seventh in the nation by U.S. News & World Report.

    Key to our success as an international leader in bioengineering is capitalizing on Rice's location, which promotes the development of long-term strategic partnerships with experts in industry and academic and government institutions. Rice is situated in the midst of one of the largest, most diverse cities in the nation. Our neighbors include the Texas Medical Center (TMC) and its member institutions. The TMC, which is the largest medical center in the world where much of Houston's biotechnology industry is focused, provides unlimited opportunity to expand our global reach and build unparalleled teaching and research programs that solve a broad spectrum of complex problems in science and medicine.

    Our faculty members have diverse research interests focused on establishing engineering principles and developing cutting-edge technologies to solve a host of life-science problems in:

  • Biomaterials and Drug Delivery,
  • Biomedical Imaging and Diagnostics,
  • Cellular and Bimolecular Engineering,
  • Computational and Theoretical Bioengineering,
  • Systems and Synthetic Biology, and
  • Tissue Engineering and Biomechanics.
