The Clemson-MUSC Bioengineering Program offers courses and research internship positions for undergraduate students at Clemson University or from other universities. Please contact the PI of each lab for more information or Dr. Tong Ye for undergraduate research opportunities in the program

Undergraduate Courses

  • BIOE 4310/6310 (3 credits) - Introduction to Medical Imaging- This course is a technical elective offered to all junior and senior students. This introductory course focuses on major imaging modalities, such as X-ray Radiography, Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), and Ultrasound Imaging, in medicine. The course covers physical principles governing each imaging modality, instruments that collect signals, methods that construct images, and, last but not least, medical applications.
  • BIOE 4910/4910H (various credits) - Mentored Research in Bioengineering- This course is a regular research opportunity each lab offers to students (honor students) during the spring and fall semesters. Please get in touch with the PI's of the lab for more details.
  • Capstone senior design - Faculty members and graduate students offer mentoring opportunities to seniors in Bioengineering.

Bioengineering Research and Clinical Summer Immersion at Charleston (BEACH)

This summer program targets students committed to advancing their engineering expertise in graduate school or a health profession after graduation. Hosted by the Clemson-MUSC Bioengineering Program, through hands-on work in research labs and shadowing experiences in clinics at MUSC in Charleston, students will develop a first-hand perspective about the skills necessary to succeed in graduate or health professional schools. Research projects will typically focus on but not limited to the following topics: orthopedics, biomaterials, bioimaging, and stem cell-based tissue engineering. This program is offered as BIOE 4910 or BIOE 4910H with 3-6 hours of credit during the summer. Please get in touch with Dr. Tong Ye for more information.
