Advanced healthcare solutions from concept to clinical innovation
BioEngine is a real-world product development and training program, through UCI Applied Innovation, that harnesses the collective creativity of industry and UCI to lead the advancement of innovative healthcare solutions.
We bring together industry and other key stakeholders with diverse resources at UCI including the School of Medicine, Samueli School of Engineering, Donald Bren School of Information and Computer Sciences, Beckman Laser Institute and UCI Athletics. Together, we collectively define and develop real-world, near-term solutions to some of the greatest high-tech and med-tech challenges.
Using rigorous coursework and interdisciplinary, team-based experiential learning, BioEngine engages and educates faculty, physicians, postdoctoral fellows, students, and industry – creating the high-impact healthcare innovators of tomorrow.
Key Development Areas
Harnessing the collective creativity of industry and UCI to lead the advancement of innovative healthcare solutions.
Benefits to Industry Involvement
Access to emerging technology via student project mentorship, vetting, licensing, etc.
Access to special facilities at UCI and Applied Innovation (e.g. maker space, specialized shared facilities on campus, etc.)

Relationship building with UCI Applied Innovation, the University, and the BioENGINE community
Recruiting from a pool of high-impact students prior to graduation (i.e. next-gen workforce experientially trained in both technical and business aspects of product development versus traditional, pure technical training)
