Students in the program earn an MD from Baylor College of Medicine and a PhD in Bioengineering from Rice University. During the first two years in the program, students typically complete the pre-clinical basic science curriculum at Baylor, then begin the PhD course of study in the Rice Bioengineering program. After successfully defending a thesis and earning a PhD, students return to Baylor to complete the clinical curriculum. Many of these students are jointly advised by Rice bioengineering faculty and Baylor clinical faculty.
Rice University offers MS and PhD degrees in applied physics through a collaboration between the Schools of Natural Sciences and Engineering. The program is overseen by a faculty committee representing the Departments of Bioengineering , Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Chemistry, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Materials Science and NanoEngineering, Physics and Astronomy, and Statistics. The objective is to provide an interdisciplinary graduate education in the basic science that underlies important technologies.
The Master of Computational Science and Engineering is a non-thesis degree program offered jointly by the departments of Computational and Applied Mathematics, Computer Science and Statistics in the School of Engineering. The program is designed to provide training and expertise in computational techniques with real-world applications in a wide range of industries.
The fast-paced nature of high-tech industries requires an unparalleled leadership style, one that blends a breadth of technical expertise with a firm foundation in business principles. The coordinated graduate degree of a Master of Business Administration and a Master of Engineering provides graduates with the unique opportunity of leading technology firms through dynamic shifts of innovation. The program is offered to students pursuing a professional master’s degree in chemical, electrical and mechanical engineering as well as computational and applied math, computer science and materials science.
