Univ of Illinois Bioengineering Graduate Program

Hello and greetings from the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign!  My name is Liezl Bowman, and I am with the Department of Bioengineering.  I wanted to take this opportunity to introduce you to our MS in Biomedical Image Computing (MS in BIC) master’s degree program for students who may be interested in pursuing graduate studies in the rapidly growing computational medical imaging field.  We welcome students with strong computational background from a variety of academic backgrounds, not just engineering or bioengineering.

The department of bioengineering within the Grainger College of Engineering is an innovation hub that leverages emerging research in medical imaging, nanotechnology, synthetic bioengineering, tissue engineering and computational biology to solve some of the most pressing medical challenges. In addition, faculty members who teach our MS in BIC classes are conducting cutting edge medical imaging research.  Here is a recent article featuring Prof. Fan Lam, faculty director of our MS in BIC program:  https://beckman.illinois.edu/about/news/article/2023/01/18/new-nih-grant-to-fund-alzheimer's-research-at-beckman.  Another faculty member, Prof. Mark Anastasio, Head of the Department of Bioengineering, is part of a new computational imaging initiative on campus: https://beckman.illinois.edu/about/news/article/2022/10/27/climbing-to-new-heights-new-beckman-center-to-break-barriers-in-imaging-technology.  Our BIC students directly network and engage with Profs. Lam and Anastasio through the BIC program.  

The MS in BIC is also available online for those looking to pursue a master’s degree program as a working professional.  All required courses can be completed fully remote without any on-campus components.

If possible, please forward this communication to your students.  I would be happy to schedule a Zoom call with interested students to discuss how our programs may be a fit with their long-term career goals.  We are still accepting applications for the Fall 2023 admission cycle, and we would love to welcome your students to our campus!
