The field of biomedical engineering applies engineering science and design to the solution of problems related to human physiology and pathophysiology. Working at the interface of engineering and medicine, biomedical engineers work to prevent injury, diagnose disease, and treat illnesses or injuries that occur. Built on a strong research foundation that stretches back more than eighty years, the biomedical engineering program at Wayne State provides coursework and research opportunities in a broad range of areas in biomechanics, tissue engineering and biomaterials, biomedical imaging, bioinstrumentation and computational biology.
