Fall 2021 | PhD in Biomedical Engineering with Emphasis in Engineering Education

The Department of Biomedical Engineering at the University of Michigan invites applications for its initiative in Engineering Education. This program is part of College of Engineering’s recent initiative to become national leaders in the growing field of engineering education.

A PhD in Biomedical Engineering with an emphasis in engineering education provides an avenue for biomedical engineering students to pursue scholarly discipline-based education research in various aspects of biomedical engineering education including but not limited to entrepreneurship engineering education, faculty development, undergraduate teaching and learning, increasing student engagement, student recruitment, transforming engineering education and retention and new biomedical curriculum/pedagogical development. It equips students with the ability to conduct independent engineering education research by using rigorous educational research methods, engineering content knowledge and advances in understanding student learning.  

The program is ideal for students interested in pursuing careers in teaching and research faculty positions, education policy, academic administration, government agencies and corporate training. For admission eligibility, all candidates must have a Bachelor’s degree in Engineering with a strong academic record and be capable of completing a biomedical engineering master’s degree. Ideal candidates have had experience putting engineering course content into practice through industry or research experience, are detail oriented, and are interested impacting change in engineering higher education. Applicants should apply for a Ph.D. in biomedical engineering through the U-M Rackham Graduate School (
