Welcome to the Department of Biomedical Engineering

Welcome to the Penn State Department of Biomedical Engineering. I am proud to report that our department is currently undergoing a period of rapid growth and development. I am seeing more innovation and cutting-edge research emerge from our department than ever before. I truly believe that Penn State is broadening the impact of biomedical engineering applications at the University and around the globe.

Our department operates at the apex of engineering, biology, mathematics, and technology with strong interdisciplinary ties in a number of academic units. Our instructors are from the Colleges of Engineering, Medicine, and Science, as well as the Huck Institutes of the Life Science, the Materials Research Institute, and the Penn State Milton S. Hershey Medical Center.

The Department of Biomedical Engineering administers the undergraduate program in biomedical engineering, as well as the bioengineering graduate program, which is part of the University-wide Intercollege Graduate Degree Program.

Whether you are seeking an undergraduate degree, a graduate degree program, a postdoctoral research experience, or are a member of industry seeking new opportunities for collaboration, our department is uniquely positioned to work with you. Thank you for reaching out to us and please feel free to contact us with your questions or needs.
