The Department of Biomedical Engineering is an ABET-accredited, highly-ranked department, which benefits from a longstanding and extensive collegial partnership with the world-renowned Washington University 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:

  • bioelectrical engineering
  • cell & tissue engineering
  • imaging technologies
  • molecular engineering

We have 16 core faculty, more than 300 undergraduate and 100 graduate students and are housed in a superb, modern teaching and research facility, The Uncas A. Whitaker Hall for Biomedical Engineering. A second facility, The Stephen F. & Camilla T. Brauer Hall (slated to open in 2010) will provide expansion space for our dynamic, still-growing department.
