Advance medical and biological frontiers
Bioengineers create new biomedical technologies that result in smart, efficient, and cost-effective approaches to diagnose and treat human disease.
From developing miniaturized and implantable microfluidic devices and imaging technology for disease diagnosis, to researching how to fight "superbugs" that have become immune to antibiotics, our faculty and staff are at the forefront of bioengineering. They'll mentor you as you work side-by-side with them in their labs.
Our undergraduate program offers three tracks—Biomolecular, Pre-Med, and Medical Device—that prepare you for a wide array of careers, from law to medicine to biotech. Stay an extra year to earn a combined B.S./M.S. degree or join us for your M.S. in Bioengineering and pursue advanced study in medical devices/bioinstrumentation and molecular and cellular bioengineering.
Hello! Please let me introduce myself as the new chair of the Department of Bioengineering. I am Jonathan (Zhiwen) Zhang. I would like to thank my colleagues and students who elected me as chair and I offer my deep appreciation and gratitude to Professor Yuling Yan, founding Chair, for her dedicated leadership of the department from 2012-2018.
