Explore the next frontier of biotechnology and prepare for a career in an exciting field poised for explosive growth. NC State industrial engineers are moving regenerative medicine from discovery to commercialization. Our engineers collaborate with physicians, therapists and other medical and biotech professionals on:

  • advanced 3-D modeling
  • bioinformatics
  • surgical machining
  • pharmaceutical production
  • image processing
  • physiological signal processing
  • biomechanics

Our faculty and students are using medical imaging, CAD and rapid prototyping to create custom medical implants, prosthetic devices and medical instruments.

We believe 3-D printing may be hold the key to solving some of today’s biggest health challenges, including the growing of organs and tissue. With rapid prototyping, our engineers are producing biomedical models to help surgeons. We are also designing custom biopolymer scaffolds for tissue engineering of bones and organs.
