Ph.D. in Biomedical Engineering South Dakota School of Mines And Technology


Course info


Biomedical Engineering

Offered jointly with University of South Dakota (USD). Biomedical engineering (BME) is concerned with the application of engineering and science methodologies to the analysis of biological and physiological problems and to the delivery of health care. The biomedical engineer serves as an interface between traditional engineering disciplines and living systems and may work in either direction, applying the patterns of living organisms to engineering design or engineering new approaches to human health.

Both the Master of Science and doctor of philosophy degrees are cross-disciplinary degrees. The Ph.D. program will prepare a student for a career as a researcher who advances the frontiers of biomedical science and engineering with attention to generating new ideas for commercialization.

Current focus areas of faculty activity within the program are (1) biomaterials (nanomaterials, bio adhesives, tissue engineering, etc.), (2) computational biomedical engineering (biomechanics, imaging, advanced modeling/simulations, etc.), (3) assistive technology/rehabilitation engineering (advanced prosthetics, control, biomimetics, etc.), (4) biomolecular and genetic engineering. Students in the programs may be associated with one or more of several SDSM&T research centers and laboratories.

Doctoral students will possess a high level of expertise in their specialized area of research - biomaterials, computational biomedical engineering, rehabilitation engineering/assistive technology, or biomolecular/genetic engineering. This competency will be developed through focused research, which culminates in the doctoral dissertation. Graduates of the program will also demonstrate:

  • the ability to communicate effectively in written and oral presentations,
  • intellectual honesty when working with data and ideas, and
  • the ability to make an original contribution to their field.
