The online Master of Science in Biomimicry at ASU is a first of its kind program focusing on an emerging discipline that seeks to apply life’s strategies to human design. Offered in collaboration with Biomimicry 3.8 through The Biomimicry Center at ASU, the MS also complements the Certified Biomimicry Professional program offered by Biomimicry 3.8.
Through this degree program, you’ll learn the methodology and practice of the discipline and how to facilitate its application across a wide variety of disciplines.
This program is ideal if you are interested in innovative, transdisciplinary learning and the opportunity to work with students from around the globe to advance the field and develop sustainable, real-world applications. You will also apply the fundamentals of your training during a series of practicums, including a self-designed “Biomimicry Virtual Design Lab.”
The biomimicry MS addresses the strong demand for the incorporation of biomimicry practices in different professions and industries including sustainability, design, life science, engineering and business.
Because of the practical application emphasis of the program, you will benefit the most from your training with at least 3-5 years of experience after your undergraduate degree. Others who have studied biomimicry have applied their knowledge globally in areas like sustainability, transportation, product design, architecture, economics, and nonprofit ventures.
