Department of Biomedical Engineering

Mission statement

The mission of the Department of Biomedical Engineering is to prepare students for rewarding careers in the medical device and biopharmaceutical industries. The first undergraduate Biomedical Engineering degree offered by a public university in Massachusetts was established to address the growing demand for biomedical engineers, especially in Massachusetts, which is a leader in Medical Devices and Biopharmaceuticals. While striving to provide students with the skills they need to succeed, the program creates opportunities for students in co-ops, internships, research and rewarding careers.
