Biomedical Engineering

Improving medicine by design

Biomedical Engineering combines expertise in biomaterials, instrumentation, and tissue engineering to improve human health and quality of life. Building on a foundation of scientific inquiry and engineering problem solving, biomedical engineers develop new devices, therapies, and diagnostic tools to understand and provide effective solutions to medical problems. The Biomedical Engineering department at IUPUI offers premier Purdue University engineering education along with groundbreaking research in collaboration with one of the best hospital systems in the world, the neighboring Indiana University School of Medicine. Whether your plans include medical or dental school, academic research, or medical device or life science companies, a Biomedical Engineering degree from IUPUI will prepare you for success.

“I started my passion for biomechanics during my undergraduate career while engaged in the Bone Biology and Mechanics Lab at IUPUI. My passion lead me to the IU School of Medicine as a medical student and a research intern at the Research Institute of Deaconess Clinic.”
