We recently asked our Master’s of Science in Biomimicry at Arizona State University students to describe their experience in the program, which helps train the next generation of innovators to create a world mentored and empowered by nature’s genius.
The diverse group of students come from around the world, and have degrees in everything from marketing to philosophy to nursing to engineering to early education and everything in between.
Watch how they describe program:

No. 1 in Innovation
Biomimicry 3.8, the world’s leading bio-inspired consultancy, partnered in 2015 with ASU, ranked No. 1 in the U.S. in innovation, to begin offering the world’s first accredited Master’s of Science in Biomimicry and the Graduate Certificate.
The first class to receive their MS in biomimicry graduated in November 2015.
Both programs are offered through ASU’s School of Life Sciences. All coursework is delivered completely online in conjunction with Biomimicry 3.8. The program was developed and is led by Dr. Dayna Baumeister, who is also co-director of The Biomimicry Center. Located on ASU’s Tempe campus, the Center is a joint effort between ASU and Biomimicry 3.8 that facilitates biomimicry education and research activities.
- Since the launch in Spring 2015, 43 people have earned their MS in Biomimicry
- Another 107 are currently enrolled and are working toward their MS in Biomimicry
- Of the current students, 29% enrolled in the MS program already hold graduate degrees
- Of the current graduate certificate students, 57% already hold graduate degrees
- Students have graduate degrees in everything from business administration to fine arts to environmental science to law degrees
- A quarter of all students live outside the U.S.
I enrolled in ASU because ASU has biomimicry–and they’re at the forefront of creating and innovation.
