The Department of Bioengineering prepares engineers who make connections between engineering and biology. We focus on biomedical materials, medical engineering, and the engineering inherent in biology.

Biomimetics is an important theme: how can we make the artificial world more like the biological world? That is to say: softer, more flexible, more reliable, more versatile, and more conscious.

In the classroom and in up-to-date labs, you will learn from professors who are committed to teaching, mentorship, and innovative research. Hands-on learning is an important component of our program, with practical applications for industry and research.

You will gain the skills and experience required for an exciting, rewarding career and will be well-prepared for advanced study.
