The World’s First Masters Degree in 3D Bioprinting

Four universities in three countries across two continents have partnered to create one revolutionary masters degree program in 3D bioprinting. They have created the world’s first masters degree program that will allow students to claim boldly and proudly that they are masters of biofabrication.

The partnering universities are Queensland University of Technology and the University of Wollongong in New South Wales in Australia, along with University Medical Center Utrecht in the Netherlands and the University of Würzburg in Germany,

The two year program gives students one Master’s degree in Regenerative Medicine & Technology from one of the above Australian universities and one of the above European universities. QUT’s biofabrication research has become famous for 3D printing bioink scaffolds infused with a patient’s stem cells to help a woman grow a new breast after a mastectomy. The University of Wollongong has made headlines for the use of seaweed and 3D printing to repair damaged tissue. Both universities, with their European counterparts, will fulfill the anticipated demand for bioprinting researchers, as well as drawing students to the respective countries for the exciting and growing field of 3D printed tissues and implants. … (Read more)
