The Bio-Engineering program seeks to provide the highest quality graduate education, which is offered jointly by four Portuguese universities with collaboration from MIT, to prepare students to:
- Master fundamental concepts of physical, chemical and biological engineering, computational systems, and medical technologies
- Understand the innovation path to translate academic research to practice
- Creatively solve complex problems and demonstrate innovative systems thinking
- Provide leadership in academia, industry, and government.
The specific emerging technologies targeted to complement and enhance the existing Portuguese biosciences and technology excellence include education and research in: tissue engineering, biomaterials, computational and synthetic biosystems, drug development, neuroscience, biomedical devices and technologies, health and environmental systems, and innovation and leadership for future bioengineers.
