Research

Our bioengineers work at the intersection of engineering and the life sciences, developing new technologies that improve people’s health and well-being. Learn More


Our Approach

We have incorporated hands-on learning opportunities into our curriculum. Each semester, students are presented with engineering problems and are given the training and guidance needed to create highly technical solutions to these problems. Students are trained on the use of advanced bench top engineering equipment from network analyzers, digital oscilloscopes, and function generators so they can design, test and build medical devices.
