General Information

Research and education at the Center for Neuroengineering & Medicine happens at the intersection of many fields, including engineering, neuroscience, medicine, and humanities. After completing undergraduate education, students may pursue master's or doctoral degrees, which allow them to specialize in specific areas such as Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience, Psychology, Computer Science, etc. 

The Center for Neuroengineering & Medicine will inspire and facilitate collaborative learning, where graduate students from a variety of majors can work together to cross-train and understand other scientific cultures and languages. 

Graduate programs at UC Davis are of two types: departmentally-based, or graduate group-based. Examples of graduate programs that include students interested in neurosciences and medicine are: Biomedical Engineering, Neuroscience, Electrical and Computer Engineering, Computer Science, Mathematics, Medicine (Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation, Neurology, Neurological Surgery) and more. 

Education and Training in neuroengineering and medicine is by definition highly interdisciplinary. Faculty from many departments, schools, and colleges at UC Davis advise and mentor graduate students and postdoctoral scholars interested in neuroengineering and medicine. Trainees must understand how the mind/body/nervous system work in health and disease, identify signals which carry sensory and motor information, and may need to build new devices. 

Students interested in neuroengineering can apply through one of the existing graduate groups or programs on campus. Here are links to some of the most relevant graduate groups or programs at UC Davis:
