Lehigh’s undergraduate major in biocomputational engineering prepares students for professional opportunities at the interface of bioengineering and computational data sciences. The curriculum presents students with a foundation in basic sciences, mathematics and computer programming, as well as a rigorous core of interdisciplinary engineering coursework. Students will take biocomputational engineering courses in which they will study bioinformatics, biophysical models and signaling in biological systems. The program culminates with a senior capstone design experience in which the students will integrate concepts and skills from their prior coursework.
Students graduating from Lehigh with a biocomputational engineering degree are well prepared for careers with pharmaceutical, biotechnology and software companies.
