Welcome to Biomedical Engineering @ CUA!
Biomedical engineers bridge the gap between medicine and engineering.
A rapidly advancing field, yet a discipline still in its nascent stages, biomedical engineering is a truly unique and interdisciplinary field. Biomedical engineers are trained in various aspects of mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, computer science, biology, chemistry, mathematics, and physics.
The biomedical engineering program at CUA prepares our graduates for this evolving field by teaching them how to apply core engineering principles to address contemporary problems facing society today. Offering degrees at the bachelor's, master's, and doctoral levels, our program offers students educational opportunities to meet their current and future career goals.
As a hotbed of biomedical engineering research with world renown institutions such as the National Institutes of Health and the Food & Drug Administration in our backyard, Washington DC provides students and professionals unique opportunities to complement their education that few other cities provide.
