Biomedical engineers combine the problem solving ability of
engineers with the knowledge of the biological and medical fields
to develop new solutions for improving human health, health care,
and quality of life for all people.
The Department of Materials Design and Innovation (MDI) is a forward-leaning, interdisciplinary initiative that will address regional and national demand for new materials that accelerate research and education in advanced manufacturing and biotechnology.
Michel Bruneau, a professor in the Department of Civil,
Structural and Environmental Engineering, was honored along with
his co-authors with the 2017 Moisseiff Award from the American
Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE).
