Lehigh's highly interdisciplinary program bridges rigorous training in the engineering and physical sciences with biology and bioengineering applications. Students learn how biological systems work, develop analytical skills, and use advanced tools in experimentation, modeling, and simulation. The program complements formal instruction with opportunities for experiential learning via extended research with faculty members, team-based and industry-sponsored design projects, and seminar courses.
