Neuroengineering Emphasis

UCSB offers a Neuroengineering (NENG) Emphasis that can be added to your PhD degree in Chemical Engineering, Computer Science, Dynamical Neuroscience, Electrical & Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Psychological & Brain Sciences.

Neuroengineering is the field of engineering that develops tools and techniques for neuroscience research and applications. It ranges from developing new analytical and modelling approaches, to creating instruments for measuring neural activity, to innovative retinal prosthesis. At UC Santa Barbara, the NENG Emphasis capitalizes on the excellent faculty and resources within our College of Engineering

The emphasis provides a community of support and a vehicle for exchange of ideas for enrolled students in the DYNS 592 Graduate Seminar, a one unit course for three quarters.

Please see the NENG requirements in the PDF link to the right on this page.

How To Apply

Petitions to add the emphasis can be submitted at any time during a student’s academic tenure if there is room in the student’s academic course load, or later if appropriate.

Doctoral students must be in good academic standing (GPA 3.0 or higher) and have the approval of their home department, or program.
