Our Mission

The mission of the Department of Biomedical Engineering is to improve the health and well being of humans through education, research, and technology development at the intersection of engineering and health.

We are enabling our students to become the thought leaders of tomorrow through an applied educational experience. Our faculty is driving this activity through their own teaching, research and development activities in biomedical engineering. Together we are working to Engineer a Healthier Future.
