Our highly-ranked department benefits from a longstanding, extensive and collegial partnership with our world-renowned School of Medicine. We seek to provide a first-class undergraduate engineering-based education to prepare students for a variety of careers. Our graduate training focuses on cutting-edge research which endeavors to encompass modern, interdisciplinary approaches to advancing basic science with the hope of better understanding, diagnosing and treating human diseases. Major research thrusts are:
We have 18.5 core faculty, 2 lecturers, 60-plus affiliated faculty, more than 408 undergraduate and 121 doctoral students. The department is housed in two superb, modern teaching and research facilities, The Uncas A. Whitaker Hall for Biomedical Engineering (2002) and in a portion of the Stephen F. & Camilla T. Brauer Hall (2010) which provides expansion space for our dynamic, still-growing department.
Prof. M.S. Wong of HKPU guides BME seniors, Emily Kenney and Quinn Kern Allely, through obtaining correct measurements for the patient's orthotic.
PhD candidate in the Lab of Dr. Samuel Wickline is honored for his highly rated abstract.
Dr. Kurt Thoroughman shares his love of science and engineering education on People Behind the Science.
Findings are published online in Nature Communications Feb. 25, 2014.
