About the Department

The Department of Biomedical engineering began as a research institute at UA in 1980 and became an academic department offering graduate degrees in 1984. In 1998, we expanded our student focus by offering an ABET-accredited undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering.

The department currently has 15 faculty members and continues to grow as a result of the demand for both our degree programs, as well as the need for cutting-edge medical research to advance today’s healthcare technologies.
