Clemson MUSC bioengineering


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 course offered to all junior and senior students. This introductory course focuses 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 that govern each imaging modality, instruments that collect signals, methods that construct images, and, least but not last, applications in medicine.
  • BIOE 4910/4910H (various credits): Mentored Research in Bioengineering. This course is a regular research opportunity that each lab offers to students (honor students) during spring and fall semesters. Please contact PIs of 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 who are 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 contact Dr. Tong Ye for more information.
