The vision of the biomedical engineering department is to promote integrative research and education at the head of biomedical science and engineering.


The mission of the biomedical engineering department is to advance the field of biomedical engineering through an interdisciplinary approach to education, design, and research.

To achieve our educational mission, we develop our students’ problem-solving and communication skills, promote their ability to think critically and independently, and help them to understand scientific and engineering approaches.


Graduates of our programs are expected:

  • To become successful biomedical engineering practitioners drawing upon and guided by their knowledge of biomedical engineering.
  • To continue improving and expanding their technical and professional skills through formal or informal means (e.g., continuing education and training, attending conferences, learning new tools and methods).
  • To contribute to community and professional groups using the unique competencies provided by their biomedical engineering educational experiences.
