Chemical engineering is a broad and versatile discipline in which chemical engineers work on the development and application of processes that change materials either chemically or physically. This branch of engineering was originally based on the applications of chemistry, combined with the principles of physics and mathematics.
Biomedical Engineering (BME) has emerged as one of the most exciting interdisciplinary research fields in modern science. Biomedical engineers apply modern approaches from the experimental life sciences in conjunction with theoretical and computational methods from the disciplines of engineering, mathematics and computer science to the solution of biomedical problems of fundamental importance. The Biomedical Engineering Graduate Program of the Johns Hopkins University is designed to train engineers to work at the cutting edge of this exciting discipline.
The objective of the department’s Ph.D. program is to produce graduates who are broadly educated in Applied Mathematics and Statistics and who can work at the current research frontiers of their specialized disciplines.
