Safety Mission Statement

The Department of Biomedical Engineering strives to conduct world-class biomedical engineering research while continuously educating and developing current graduate and undergraduate students. Improving the lives of individuals is central to the department’s focus, and that begins with those performing the research. We are committed to conducting our research activities with the highest degree of safety and ensuring the protection of all individuals in the biomedical engineering community.

Developing a research community with a focus on safety not only improves the quality and effectiveness of the associated research programs, it educates students and promotes the development of safe and effective independent researchers moving forward to professional careers in academics medicine and industry.

Safety is the responsibility of the entire biomedical engineering community including administrators, principal investigators, faculty and students. Identifying and immediately addressing potential hazards with colleagues staff and students not following appropriate safety protocols and guidelines is the responsibility of us all.



The Department of Biomedical Engineering administers the bachelor of science, master of science, and doctorate degree programs in biomedical engineering. Our work combines traditional engineering principles with medicine and technology for the betterment of human health and society.
