The School of Biomedical Engineering, Science, and Health Systems is a nationally recognized center of research and graduate education, offering multidisciplinary graduate instruction and research on both a full- and part-time basis.
Each program consists of a core curriculum providing the necessary technical and analytical training to prepare students to apply their engineering skills or knowledge of the life sciences to current problems in biology and medicine.
Areas of specialization include:
- Biomaterials and tissue engineering
- Biomechanics and human performance engineering
- Biosensors and biomedical imaging
Students in the Biomedical Engineering master's program may also participate in an optional Graduate Co-op experience.
To accommodate the need for multidisciplinary research, the school operates core research and computing laboratories for both educational and research purposes. In addition to core facilities, laboratories designed for specific research projects are supervised by faculty members.
