|Mission||The mission of the department is to enhance biomedical engineering education at Wayne State University in order to enable our graduates to attack the societal epidemics of premature death, pain, and disability that result from trauma and aging.|
Educational programs in the area of biomedical engineering have existed unofficially since the 1950's. They have developed from a few courses taken within traditional engineering departments to the graduate degree program in Biomedical Engineering, introduced in 1998. The Department of Biomedical Engineering, positioned across the boundaries of the College of Engineering and the School of Medicine, was established in 2002.
Drawing upon the strengths of the biomedical engineering graduate program, the Department has estabilished a new undergraduate program that has accepted its first student for the Fall 2010 semester.
