APPLY for the joint Ph.D. program!

APPLICATIONS FOR ALL PROGRAMS IN THE BME DEPARTMENT ARE CONSIDERED FOR FALL ENTRY ONLY AND ARE DUE DECEMBER 1. THE APPLICATION ITSELF AND ALL MATERIALS ASSOCIATED WITH THE APPLICATION ARE DUE ON THIS DATE.

Students apply to the program through the school designated as the home campus, either the Department of Biomedical Engineering at PKU in Beijing or the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Tech and Emory in Atlanta. Students will have an advisor at the home campus and co-advisor at the secondary campus. Most of the classes and research will take place on the home campus. However, students will also spend at least one year taking classes and participating in research in the co-advisor's lab on the secondary campus. Most classes will be taught in English and a single dissertation will satisfy the thesis requirements of all three institutions. Students will be fully supported as long as they maintain satisfactory progress in the program.
