Biomedical engineering is a discipline that combines knowledge in engineering, molecular and cellular biology, and medicine to improve human health and progress. In biomedical engineering, students and faculty work together extensively to build interdisciplinary knowledge and develop clinically translatable solutions for human health — from the design and development of artificial organs and devices for injury recovery to helping create advanced detection systems and refine medical imaging techniques and equipment. Students have gone on to take positions within academic institutions, the health care field and in industry.
