Director: Dr. David A. Puleo
The mission of the Department of Biomedical Engineering is to provide quality programs of education, research and service in the area of biomedical engineering. The multidisciplinary character of biomedical engineering and operation of the program as a Graduate Department offer unique opportunities to fulfill this mission. The educational mission is served by bringing the expertise of faculty from diverse disciplines to bear upon the development of a curriculum focusing on the application of the principles of engineering and physics to medicine and biology.
The Department of Biomedical Engineering was known as the Graduate Center for Biomedical Engineering before July 1, 2013.
