Welcome to the Department of Biomedical Engineering!

Established in 2009 by the Arizona Board of Regents, the newest Engineering department reflects a University of Arizona tradition of interdisciplinary research at the intersection of medicine, science, and engineering that is more than 50 years old.

Faculty in the Department of Biomedical Engineering have a variety of backgrounds and research areas, but all are dedicated to improving human health through the application of engineering and scientific principles.

The undergraduate program in Biomedical Engineering has graduated its first class of 27 students in 2013 with a BME’s Bachelor of Science.
It is expected to grow to a size of 200-250 students by 2015.

The Graduate Interdisciplinary Program in Biomedical Engineering capitalizes on the research and teaching expertise of more than 60 faculty in Biomedical Engineering and 16 other departments into one exciting graduate education program.
