Find out what students are saying about UCR's Bioengineering Program:

"I chose UCR for the research opportunities that are available to undergraduate students."


Be BIGThe Bioengineering Interdepartmental Graduate (BIG) program is exceptional with an additional 30 faculty across UCR, enhancing research opportunities for their students. A network of research centers, including the newly established Center for Bioengineering Research (CBR), provides extensive support for their research programs with core capabilities in genomics, bioimaging, bioinformatics, proteomics, nanotechnology, analytical chemistry and stem cell technology. And BIG is one of the few biomedical engineering programs where the graduate students can take non-clinical medical school courses alongside of the medical students.

All of this culminates into a truly exceptional educational and research program to produce the best graduates for future advancements in Bioengineering, Biomedical Engineering and Biotechnology. To learn more, contact



Antibiotics. Artificial joints. Pacemakers, implants and heart valves. These are but a few of the extraordinary medical breakthroughs brought to us over the last several decades by the rapidly evolving science of bioengineering.

Today, UCR’s uniquely interdisciplinary bioengineering program combines the expertise of biologists, neuroscientists, nanotechnologists, physiologists, mathematicians, geneticists and others to push the boundaries of this dynamic field. From the discovery of powerful new drugs and diagnostic tools to the development of novel biocompatible materials that will revolutionize 21st century medicine, our researchers and graduates collaborate with pharmaceutical companies, medical device manufacturers and other organizations to put the power of groundbreaking ideas to work in the real world.
