Biomedical Engineering

Biomedical engineering is a discipline that advances and progresses knowledge in engineering, biology and medicine, and improves human health. This is done through cross-disciplinary activities that incorporate the engineering sciences with biomedical sciences and clinical practice.

CUA's Biomedical Engineering program prepares students for this evolving field by teaching them how to apply core engineering principles to invent and advance technologies that are needed for diagnosing medical conditions, assisting with rehabilitation and improving the lives of people with disabilities and/or chronic illness. The program also offers opportunities to work in nationally renowned laboratories in the DC area.
