The Rice University Department of Bioengineering is a top-tier teaching and research institution. The cornerstone of our success as an international leader in bioengineering is capitalizing on our central location. Our neighbors include the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical complex in the world, and its member institutions.
While biology and biological processes are fundamental to our research, it is through the integration of engineering and technological tools that we expand basic and life science and positively impact human health.
The Bioengineering Department at Rice University welcomes you to learn about our research at the intersection of biology and engineering. We invite prospective students to apply to our highly regarded graduate and undergraduate programs.
