Clemson MUSC bioengineering


The Clemson-MUSC Bioengineering Program offeres numerous research positions for undergraduate students at Clemson University or nearby schools. Please contact the PI of each lab for more information.

The Bioengineering Department has initiated two summer undergraduate research programs on its MUSC campus beginning 2018.

Design Fundamentals in Needs-Finding Experience (DeFINE)

The DeFINE Program is a six-week clinical immersion program funded by the National Institute of Health (NIH) and VentureWell. DeFINE allows rising juniors and seniors in Bioengineering to experience, empathize, and observe various clinical specialties with the goal to identify needs and evaluate these needs from a technology valuation perspective. This enables students to learn how to assess the probability of technology commercialization for potential solutions to the identified needs.

Bioengineering Research and Clinical Summer Immersion at Charleston (BEACH)

This summer program targets students who are committed to advancing their engineering expertise in graduate school or a health profession after graduation. Hosted by the Clemson-MUSC Bioengineering Program, through hands-on work in research labs and shadowing experiences in clinics at MUSC in Charleston, students will develop a first-hand perspective about the skills necessary to succeed in graduate or health professional schools. Research projects will typically focus on but not limited to the following topics: orthopedics, biomaterials, bioimaging, and stem cell-based tissue engineering. This program is offered as BIOE 4910 or BIOE 4910H for 3-6 hours of credit for one or both of Summer Session I & II.
