Department of Biomedical Engineering

Message From Chair

Welcome to the Department of Biomedical Engineering at UCI.

Biomedical engineering combines engineering expertise with medical needs for the enhancement of human health. It is a branch of engineering in which knowledge and skills are developed and applied to define and solve problems in biology and medicine. Students choose the biomedical engineering field to be of service to people, for the excitement of working with living systems, and to apply advanced technology to the complex problems of medical care. Biomedical engineers may be called upon to design instruments and devices, to bring together knowledge from many sources to develop new procedures, or to carry out research to acquire knowledge needed to solve new problems.

I invite you to explore our department website to learn more about our challenging degree programs, our research progress and our exceptional faculty. Please contact us if you have any questions.
