Biomedical Engineering – 2020 Projects

The Department of Biomedical Engineering has set the standard in biomedical design since introducing its landmark undergraduate Design Team program more than two decades ago. With the addition of our renowned master’s design program, offered through the department’s Center for Bioengineering Innovation and Design, more than 10 years ago, biomedical engineering students of all levels are engineering the future of medicine by developing new technologies to diagnose and treat disease.
