To train the next generation of leaders in bioengineering, we've created an innovative teaching program that transcends boundaries between bioengineering, science, and medicine.

Our program has been consistently ranked among the nation’s top 10 bioengineering/biomedical engineering undergraduate programs since 2008.

Rice University is located in the heart of Houston, Texas, which is the fourth most populous city in the nation and home to a growing biomedical and technology industrial base. Our neighbors include the Texas Medical Center (TMC), the largest medical center in the world and the eighth-largest business district in the United States.
