Master’s and Doctoral Program

Stanford Bioengineering offers master’s and doctoral programs, which lead to an MS degree and/or PhD in Bioengineering. The master’s program consists of core bioengineering courses, technical electives, seminars, and unrestricted electives to deepen knowledge and learning. Combining rigorous coursework with novel research mentored by Stanford faculty, the PhD program enables students to develop as independent intellectual leaders working at the interfaces between biology, medicine, engineering, and the physical sciences.

Bioengineering graduate students have the option to pursue dual and joint programs with the Stanford Schools of Business, Medicine, and/or Law. Options exist for an MS/MBA dual degree, MD/PhD combined degree, JD/MS or JD/PhD combined degree.
