The Bioengineering Science program at GBCC is intended for those who have a strong passion for problem-solving, creativity, and biological sciences.  Our program has a strong focus on the first two years of a bachelor program in the biological and physical sciences. Bioengineers work in conjunction with doctors and other researchers to design and develop equipment to solve clinical problems.

Why Great Bay?

We have an 11 to 1 student to faculty ratio which provides students a robust opportunity for greater campus involvement and success. With an excellent proximity to neighboring industries at the Pease Tradeport, the University of New Hampshire, and the Naval Shipyard, our students have the flexibility to enhance their education to meet their professional goals.

Career Options

Bioengineering graduates have the option to work in industry, the government, and academia.

Program Outcomes

  • Students will access, generate, process, and transfer information using appropriate technologies.
  • Students will understand mathematics and become mathematically confident by communicating and reasoning mathematically, by applying mathematics in real-world settings, and by solving problems through the integrated study of number systems, geometry, algebra, and trigonometry.
  • Students will understand and apply scientific concepts, principles, and theories pertaining to the physical world and recognize the historical development of ideas in science.
  • Students will apply technological knowledge and skills to design, construct, use, and evaluate products and systems.
  • Students will understand the relationships and common themes that connect mathematics, science, and technology and apply the themes to other areas.
  • Students will apply the knowledge and skills of mathematics, science, and technology to real-life problems and make informed decisions.
  • After completing the program, students will be prepared to begin using mathematical analysis, scientific inquiry, and engineering design, as appropriate, to pose questions, seek answers, and develop solutions.
