Advisor Selection

You should identify a doctoral advisor by the beginning of your first spring semester, or earlier. Due to the research intensive nature of the degree, it is difficult to make progress in the program without an advisor who can provide you with initial research direction. If students wish to change their advisor selection later in the program, they may do so in consultation with the program director.

Additional information may be found in the Bioengineering PhD Handbook under the section "Advising".
