Joint Ph.D. Program with GT/Emory

The joint Ph.D. program of the Department of Biomedical Engineering (BME) offers a unique means for U.S. and Chinese students who want to learn and work in a global economy and in global health settings. Students apply to the program through their home campus, either the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Peking University in Beijing or the Wallace H. Coulter Department of Biomedical Engineering at Georgia Institute of Technology and Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia. Students have an advisor at the home campus and co-advisor at the secondary campus. Most of the classes and research take place on the home campus; however, students also spend at least one year taking classes and participating in research in the co-advisor's lab on the secondary campus. Classes are taught in English and a single dissertation satisfies the thesis requirements of all three institutions.
