Regenerative Engineering

The Master of Science (M.S.) in Regenerative Engineering program is intended to train a new transdisciplinary workforce for Regenerative Engineering. Regenerative Engineering is a new field defined as the convergence of advanced materials science, stem cell science, physics, developmental biology and clinical translation for the regeneration of complex tissues and organ systems. The master program is administrated by the Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering and the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at the University of Connecticut.

Requirements: The M.S. in Regenerative Engineering requires a minimum of 30 credits. The credits include: 21 credits of advanced course work and successful completion of a thesis research (Plan A). Thesis research is equivalent to nine credit hours. The thesis must be an original and significant contribution to the field of regenerative engineering and related science and must be defended orally according to Graduate School requirements.

Core Courses (15 credits): CHEG 5013, 5352, 5373; MSE 5001, 5700.

Elective Courses: A total of six elective credits are required. Students will choose from a list of approved courses including, but not limited to: BME 5000, 6086; CHEG 5358, 5395; CSE 5800, 5810, 5815; MSE 5322, 5336. Students may request permission from the Advisory Committee and the Program Director to enroll in an elective that is not on the list of approved courses.
