Harvard Business School and Harvard’s School of Arts and Sciences announced an exciting new course starting from fall 2020. Overseen by the Department of Stem Cell and Regenerative Biology, this course is a joint MBA/ MS in Biotechnology. Students enrolled in this program learn a mix of biomedical sciences and business thus gearing towards careers in biomedical consulting, pharma and finance.

The admission requirements for this program are a degree in Science, Technology, Engineering or Mathematics (STEM).Harvard University through its extension school offers an on-campus and off-campus Master’s in Biotechnology leading to a Master’s in Liberal Arts – Biotechnology.

This is a one-year program which has twelve courses of which two have to be finished on campus. This program is only for students with an undergraduate degree in a science field (physical, life, or computer science), at least one year of proven post-undergraduate scientific research experience, and an academic background in molecular, cellular, and organismal biology.

Areas of Expertise:

  • list items Cell and Tissue Engineering, Biomaterials and Therapeutics
  • list items Biophysics and Self-Assembly
  • list items Bioinspired Robotics and Computing

    Studying at Harvard is an experience. Only the best students do manage to get in. The reason is that even though the Harvard University Computer Science undergraduate and graduate courses may not be ranked among the top ten, but as a university overall, Harvard ranks as the 2nd best university in the country. It is a fact that studying at Harvard implies learning alongside some of the brightest and most talented people in the world. 

    All undergraduates in Computer Science at Harvard work towards the basic Bachelor of Arts degree (A.B.). One can also qualify for the Honors program which demands more challenging coursework than the basic program.

    John A Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences at Harvard does not have traditional academic departments and does not award degrees by a specific research area. Instead, graduate students work toward a degree in one of seven subjects:

  • list items Applied Mathematics
  • list items Applied Physics
  • list items Computer Science
  • list items Computational Science & Engineering
  • list items Data Science
  • list items Design Engineering
  • list items Engineering Sciences. 
  • Students may apply for the Master of Science or Master of Engineering in Computational Science and Engineering. Master of Science in Computer Science is not awarded as a terminal degree. Master’s degrees are only awarded en-route to the Ph.D. degree, and students are not admitted directly into a masters program in Computer Science.

    Candidates applying for any graduate degree in this program must have a Bachelor’s degree in the natural sciences, mathematics or engineering. Students will also need to have taken the GRE (general).
    At this point until further notice, Harvard is only offering a Ph.D. program in Computer Science.

    Areas of Expertise:

  • list items Graphics, Vision and Interaction (Human-Computer Interaction, Computer Graphics, Scientific and Information Visualization, Computer Vision)
  • list items Theory of Communication
  • list items Artificial Intelligence (Computational Linguistics, Machine Learning, Multi-agent Systems, Robotics)
  • list items Computational Neuroscience
  • list items Economics and Computation
  • list items Numerical Analysis
  • list items Astrostatistics
  • list items Systems, Networks and Databases (Operating Systems, Distributed Systems, Database Management Systems)
  • list items Theory of Computation
  • list items Architecture
  • list items Information and Society (Policy, Computer Science Education, Privacy and Security)
  • list items Programming Languages (Foundations, Design and Application, Implementation)
  • list items Biostatistics
  • list items Computational and Data Science (High Performance Computing, Connectomics, Large-scale Data Management)
  • List of Labs: Center for Research on Computation and Society

    Students opting for electrical engineering specialize in electronic circuits and devices while being provided the opportunity to explore :

  • list items Signals and systems theory
  • list items Control systems
  • list items Robotics
  • list items Optoelectronic devices
  • list items Integrated circuits
  • list items Energy systems
  • list items Computer vision
  • list items Electronic materials
  • list items Computer software and hardware
  • list items Mechanical
  • list items Biological
  • list items Environmental systems.
  • Undergraduate students can apply for a Bachelor of Arts (A.B) or a Bachelor of Science (S.B) degree. The Bachelor of Arts degree allows you to study deeper the specific disciplines of Electrical Engineering, while the Bachelor of Science gives you a broader insight into engineering fundamentals. The B.S program is also accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. (Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology). 

    The Department offers a Ph.D. Program in Electrical Engineering. Masters degrees are only awarded en-route to the Ph.D., and students are not admitted directly into a masters program in Electrical Engineering.

    Areas of Expertise:

  • list items Robotics and Control
  • list items Signal Processing

    Courses in Environmental Engineering at the undergraduate level at Harvard include studying

  • list items Earth and planetary sciences
  • list items engineering
  • list items integrative biology and public policy
  • list items Maths
  • list items Physics
  • list items Chemistry
  • Harvard's undergraduate program offers :

  • list items Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) in Environmental Science and Engineering
  • list items Bachelor of Science (S.B.) in Engineering Sciences (an ABET-accredited program) in the Environmental Science and Engineering Track
  • The difference between the Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science programs is that while most of the coursework is similar, students in the arts program take additional courses from other natural and social sciences. Students in the science program are more geared to taking other engineering related courses.

    Please note that Harvard offers only a Ph.D. program in Environmental Engineering. The program is structured to be around 4 to 5 years long. The first two years are spent on coursework. The remaining years are spent on full-time research culminating in presenting an original thesis after which the Ph.D. is awarded.

    Areas of Expertise:

  • list items Oceans and Geophysics
  • list items Atmospheric and Climate Measurements and Modeling
  • list items Environmental Chemistry and Microbiology
  • list items Engineering, Economic Development, and Resource Management
  • list items Instrumentation and Field Measurements
