FAST FACTS ›
- Our internationally recognized researchers were instrumental in forming the nation’s first organization for engineering biomaterials.
- The professional group The Society for Biomaterials began at Clemson in 1974.
- We have 14 undergraduate Creative Inquiry research projects ranging from troubleshooting orthopedic implants to applying medical technology to the developing areas of the world.
- The U.S. Department of Labor predicts that bioengineering will see a 72 percent employment growth in the next 10 years.
Grow human cells on aortic roots, study how replacement hips wear over time and design implants using living and nonliving materials. These remarkable breakthroughs in technology are just a few examples of the amazing research going on in Clemson’s bioengineering labs. Through your classes and labs, you’ll gain an extensive understanding of biology, biochemistry and physiology and will graduate with the capability to apply advanced mathematics to solve the ever-increasing problems that require engineering to mix with biology. Every day, you and your professors will work side-by-side in the lab on research into how engineers — in collaboration with physicians — can support the human body to prevent and solve medical problems.
