Dear students, parents, and partners;

Welcome to our Bioengineering Department, a nationally recognized leader in both education and research.

Bioengineering is a unique multidisciplinary field that applies the foundations of science and engineering to advance the understanding of biological systems and to find solutions for medical problems.

Our faculty are experts in the scientific foundations of bioengineering and use this knowledge to advance technologies in our four concentration areas—Biomedical Imaging and Devices, Computational Biomedical Engineering, Biomaterials and Nanomedicine, and Neurotechnology and Computational Neuroscience—to improve human health.

Our students pursue careers in industry, government, and academia, in positions involving basic research, technology development, and project management.

I invite you to discover our world-class faculty and network of partners in research, industry, and clinical medicine, who together provide the quality and breadth of education and research that is unique to Mason Bioengineering.
