Graduate Programs

The Petit Institute is proud to support three graduate programs at Georgia Tech: Bioengineering, Bioinformatics and Quantitative Biosciences. Each of these interdisciplinary programs offer Masters and Ph.D. degrees from more than eight Georgia Tech home schools and departments.


The Georgia Tech Interdisciplinary Bioengineering Graduate Program was established in 1992. Over 170 students have graduated from the program in a broad spectrum of research by our 100 participating faculty from the Colleges of Engineering, Computing, Sciences, and Architecture as well as Emory University School of Medicine.
