If you are exploring a future in bioengineering, you have come to the right place. The Richard and Loan Hill Department of Bioengineering at UIC prepares undergraduate students for rewarding careers in the field or for future study—whether that’s medical school, law school, a doctoral degree, or a master’s in bioengineering or bioinformatics.

This page is designed to help you get started in learning about our department. Use the buttons below (or the navigation menus above) to learn about majors, student organizations, and becoming a part of our community.

Admission to the undergraduate bioengineering programs is handled through the university’s main undergraduate admissions office—so we encourage you to visit its site. That is where you will find details about how and when to apply, financial aid and tuition support, and more.
